In March 2022, this blog highlighted the plight of workers at the Capital Club East Africa, in Westlands, Nairobi.
They protested rampant mistreatment and racial discrimination by a rogue female Asian manager whose impunity knew no boundaries.
Some employees recounted being forced to report to work even when on medical leave.
Eight months down the line, insiders say the situation at the premier private city club is yet to take a turn for the better.
In fact, as per the latest submission to our news desk, things seem to have worsened.
The entertainment hub is now faced with a massive employee exodus as suffering staff opt to seek greener pastures elsewhere.
In the kitchen department, a new local chef – Caleb Odera is said to have driven out almost ten (10) employees due to his abrasive methods of supervision.
Female workers are the most affected.
“Greetings Mr Nyakundi.
Thanks for the good job you do to raise issues affecting the less fortunate people.
Some time back you raised an issue concerning Capital Club East Africa in Westlands.
The club continues to mistreat staff, some are depressed and quitting jobs.
In the HR department, the same lady who has gone to bed with the management can’t do anything while staff keep on suffering.
The local chef by the name Caleb Odera, who manipulated his way up to be the head chef despite not having enough merit, is very abusive to the kitchen staff, more so ladies.
Three ladies have already resigned, and several men left because of the way he mistreats them.
They don’t pay staff dues even after they leave after serving them for more than 6 years.
Please highlight this.
Thank you,” the source writes.
When any of the affected staff members attempt to seek an audience over the inhumane state of affairs, the Asian GM immediately serves them termination letters.
How does a mere General Manager have so much power, you wonder?
Well, according to our source, it is an open secret that Nasrin enjoys a very friendly relationship with one of the male directors at Capital Club East Africa.
To make matters worse, employees have been left completely helpless since the Human Resources Manager lead identified as “Joyce” is reported to be in bed with Ms Nasrin.
