A former employee of National Bank of Kenya (NBK) is smiling all the way to the bank after he became a millionaire after his boss made an irregular sacking. John Wanjohi who had worked at the institution for over 29 years was summarily dismissed illegally by his branch manager whom they were not seeing each other eye to eye.
According to The Standard digital news platform, a Nairobi magistrates court Labor Court Judge Njuma Nderi found that NBK was in breach of the bankers contract with the bank and irregularly sacked John without following due diligence. The branch manager delegated himself the accuser and the judge and sacked the clerk without giving him an opportunity to even defend himself over accusations of making the bank loose a busness opportunity worth 140 million.
The magistrate went ahead and ordered the bank to pay John 17 million shillings for the blunder and for causing him distress and refusing the complainant an opportunity to explain himself. NBK was ordered to immediately reimburse the complainant 17 million to his account.
