"Deal With Them Mr. President" Atwoli Tells Ruto Over Security Firms Doing The Following

Francis Atwoli, the secretary general of the Central Organization of Trade Unions of Kenya (Cotu), has urged President Ruto to address the issue of private security companies operating unlawfully and violating workers' rights.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Atwoli claimed that Cotu had received an alarming amount of complaints about numerous private security firms that did not adhere to the minimum wage regulations.

In order for them to pay taxes to the government, Atwoli said, "We have written to a number of these private firms requiring that they first legalize their activity by being registered and listed by the Private Security Regulatory Authority."

He continued by saying that the bulk of the 183 registered private companies continue to be the biggest offenders of the rights and welfare of security workers.

"Cotu would like to call on His Excellency President William Ruto's administration to crack down on these rogue private security firms and ensure that these firms are not only registered through PRSA, so that the government can collect their fair share of the revenue, but also that workers are paid a decent salary that is above the minimum wage," Atwoli said.
