The county labour office of Kisumu has issued a seven-day notice to Nakumatt Kisumu, asking the retailer to clear workers’ arrears. The notice came after 35 employees yesterday petitioned the government to intervene over salary arrears.
Nakumatt Kisumu shut its doors on Monday, following closures of the store in other parts of the country.
The workers camped outside the store for three days, claiming that their contracts were due to end in January 2020. Therefore, the workers demand their three months pay, just like their counterparts in Uganda and Tanzania.
Besides, the workers claim that Nakumatt failed to follow due process because the retailer never issued a notice of termination.
Closure of Nakumatt Mega City leaves the stores with only five outlets in the country.
