Daima Milk, a company owned by Sameer Agriculture and Livestock Limited that the Kenyatta Family has
In January 2019, this site highlighted the plight of workers at the Daima Milk Factory.
The information received indicated that employees were receiving their salaries near the middle of the month, around 10th or 15th of every month.
The working conditions are also not conducive for any normal human beings as exploitation, abuse and overworking were the order of the day.
Sometimes the delayed salaries are paid in half and the workers are promised that they will received the other half the next month.
The staff are overworked, in that, where a particular work is supposed to be undertaken by lets say 4 or 5 people, it is forced on two people.
Daima also fires staff without notice. One may come to work in the morning and be told that they have been fired. Someone with an ‘envelop’ has replaced you’, you are told.
When one works extra hours, they are not paid overtime.
To make the matters worse, these issues have been reported to Central Organsiation of Trade Unions (COTU) yet no action has been taken because the owners of these companies are connected.
COTU took bribes from the management of Daima and that was the end of that case.
The other issue we highlighted is Daima tried to cover up the death of a worker who was burned to death in a boiler at their factory in Nakuru County.
