According to social and human rights activists, the video was a representation of what female colleagues go through at their places of work, with very few stipulated laws to protect them.

As the pressure mounted, the supermarket has issued a notice stating that the captured behavior was prohibited at the work premises, adding that the Supervisor had been suspended following the incident.

‘We as EastMatt condemn and do not stand for such heinous acts of disrespect against out staff more so women. the individual in question acted solely and has since been suspended with a report officially being filed at Kajiado County Police,” read the statement.

The statement also made it clear that the matter was being handled accordingly with the management as well as the authorities that had been indulged.
