Local staff at Tullow Oil Kenya report that the retrenchment of staff has targeted them.
“Tullow has targeted and laid off all turkana staff”, the source said.
Tullow is reportedly facing slow business and losses. However, Tullow Oil through their Managing Director Martin Mbogo has said that the company is not broke and that it is still on course to put Kenya on the oil exporters’ map.
“Project Oil Kenya remains commercially viable and is underpinned by substantial underlying reserves. Tullow would not be continuing to invest if this was not the case,” said Tullow Kenya Managing Director Martin Mbogo.
The MD was responding to local media reports that have painted a grim picture of the British oil firm’s venture.
The article had expressed fears over the commercial viability of Kenya’s oil reserves.
Nonetheless, the locals, Turkana people are wondering why they have been laid off.
