Leaked E-Mail Exposes Racism At Kenindia Ltd

For Kenyans working for Asians, it is 1619 every day.

Indians, because of the lack of melanin on their skins, thought themselves to be white people, but the British showed them they are not, so, this colonial hangover and depression, they take it out on Africans.

Over the past few years, this blog has consistently highlighted cases of extensive mistreatment and racial discrimination that are meted out upon Kenyans working in various Asian-owned firms and corporations within the country.

They force countless workers to endure slavery-era conditions just to take home peanuts in the name of wages.

You can find most of those articles under the #SlaveryInKenya series where companies like Blowplast, Safepak, Flower City, Orbit Chemicals, Vitafoam, Chandaria Industries, among many others.

This time around, Kenindia Assurance Limited is the latest entrant to the list of shame.

This comes after hirelings at the Nairobi-based insurance firm got their hands on a leaked internal memo which exposed Chief Finance Officer (CFO) Mohan Jha as a wicked racist man who totally disregards native workers.

The e-mail address dated Wednesday, May 18, 2022, was addressed to the company’s COO James Macharia in regards to a request to provide a driver in place of one Mr John Mukirai Karanja who had been suspended on grounds of alleged indiscipline.

In part of his response, Mr Mohan Jha referred to Kenindia employees as “monkeys”.

“Hi, Nyakundi,

Chief Finance Officer at KenIndia Insurance is basically racist.

Check out this leaked internal memo below.

He calls us monkeys,” the source writes.

Kenindia Insurance Ltd was established as a merger of Indian Insurance Companies operating in Kenya to form a joint venture.

By 2007, a span of 29 years, the company had crossed the Ksh 3 billion gross premium income mark to become the largest non-life insurer in Kenya.

The company currently provides a wide portfolio of insurance products in the general insurance segments.
