Casual workers from the the Naivasha sub county have cried foul over the decision to disengage them after working for more than 5 years.

According to a petition seen by Kahawa Tungu, the 29 workers obtained an order from the court asking to be reinstated and given appointment letters as permanent and pensionable workers.

The court ordered the county government to pay the workers the salary arrears which amounted to close to one year.

The workers said they had opted to use verbal threats threatening to sack the petitioners  despite the court order and consent.

They also claim that the sub county failed to remit their National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) and National Social security Fund (NSSF) hence they were forced to remit on their own.

They have resorted to seeking help from Human rights and labor organisations to intervene on their behalf saying that they have suffered irreparable loss and damage and have been unable to cater for their living expenses.
