Judge Orders Employee Who Sacked Staff Because Of Lucy Kibaki's Funeral Convoy Delay To Pay 4 Times

The court listened to the case of two employees who were fired back in May 7 2016 for getting late to work because of the jam that was caused in town by Lucy Kibaki's funeral convoy delay. The case was heard by Judge Stella Rutto who listened to the premature sacking of the three for a mistake that wasn't theirs.

The two staff at Bliss Healthcare Limited we're headed to work when they found the road blocked as the convoy headed to the burial was allowed to pass. Judge Rutto said it was so unfair and ordered their boss to pay them 4 Month's salary.

"The hospital did not satisfy the requirement of substantive fairness as no reason was advanced tojustify the termination of employment. The claimants are entitled to compensation equivalent to four month's salary and one month salary in lieu of notice," said Judge Rutto.

This was a big win for the two who were accused falsely. According to this order, the nurse who earned Ksh25,000 will be awarded Ksh125,000 while the lab technician who earned Ksh35,000 will be awarded Ksh175,000.
