Kazungu warned against meddling in workers’ affairs

02 May 2014, 14:43

Nairobi - A cross section of leaders used the Labour Day celebrations as a platform to urge the Cabinet Secretary for Labour, Kazungu Kambi, to desist from meddling in the affairs of workers’ unions.

Leaders from both the Natonal Assembly and the Senate decried the recent tussle for supremacy and claim to organise Labor Day celebrations between Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) and Public Servants Trade Unions (PUSETU).

Ronald Tanui, the Member of Parliament for Bomet Central and an official of Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers called on Kambi to stop “meddling” the registrar of trade unions.

“If he does not, the floor of Parliament will be used to fix him,” he said.

Senate Minority leader, Moses Wetangula, also fired a veiled broadside at Kambi.

“Those who think they are going to weaken the resolve of Kenyan workers, we are telling them that is not the way to go,” he said.

He added that COTU had been one of the pillars of stability in the country.

“One should think twice before sponsoring splinter groups to weaken workers’ unions,” he added.

Nairobi Senator, Mike Mbuvi, however used the platform to call for a truce between Kambi and COTU Secretary General, Francis Atwoli.

He called on the two to settle their differences for the benefit of the Kenyan workers.
