In the ensuing retrenchment, staff that have worked on contract for the national carrier Kenya Airways (KQ) are staring at a great loss.
Though it might be a benefit to retrench those that are on contract as it gives them easy ways with the courts, the staff on contract have worked for more than 5 years and are bound to lose on the benefits.
The struggling airliner is a den of conmen who cart away huge chunks of cash knowing too well that the Govt will bail the airline out of it makes losses.
In the financial year ended December 2019, KQ blamed rising costs for the sh13 billion loss.
The fact that the loss was reported in the year before Covid-19 pandemic grounded the aviation sector promises the airline more painful days ahead.

Sources say, the contract staff used to work for KQ under CDL a company which was used to steal money from employees by some KQ managers. They were onboarded two years back. Though they are KQ staff they are underpaid and they receive nil allowances. Basically, they are cheap labour and can be fired any time.
“Imagine working for a company for all these years then at the end of it you go home with nothing. In real sense those who earn hefty amounts of money are the ones who should be retrenched. They are paid so much but do nothing. Some of these managers have been in forefront in stealing from the airline. Others have got duplication do the same job and report to work the same time”, an anonymous source wrote to cnyakundi.com
