The Postal Corporation of Kenya (PCK) has been ordered by Justice David Majanja to provide statements of deductions made from beneficiaries of the PCK Staff Retirement Scheme for the past seven years.
The trustees of the scheme have accused PCK of failing to remit dues amounting to Sh540 million.
The transfer of two properties in Kizingo in Mombasa and another in Nairobi was approved by the parent ministry of ICT in 2018, but it has allegedly been delayed by procedures required by the ministry.
The judge has directed PCK to file a progress report on the plans to transfer the properties to the scheme within 120 days from the date of the ruling.
The PCK Staff Retirement Scheme was established in April 2010, and the trustees claimed that PCK failed to remit the sums, jeopardizing the retirement plans of its members and exposing the trustees to sanctions by the Retirement Benefits Authority.
PCK has opposed the case and argued that the matter should have been referred to arbitration.
The corporation also claimed that it was in financial distress and could not make cash payments, but the viable method was the transfer of the properties.
The judge declined to order the payment of the dues as the parties were engaged in talks.
The judge has noted that the matter has remained unresolved since it was filed six years ago, and it is in the interest of justice for PCK to inform the court and the plaintiff of the progress of the implementation of the settlement.
