The St. John Ambulance likes to paint a picture of a more formidable and better managed outfit than the corrupt Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) however, an early morning email to the chief editor of this site has revealed the rot that has been hidden from the public’s eye.
The source reveals that the entity pays low wages for junior staff while senior employees pockets huge amounts of money.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) one Mr. Albert Ruturi takes home more than Ksh600,000 every month in allowances alone while a driver in the same organisation takes home less than Ksh20k per month.
For some reason, the current management is killing regional branches instead of strengthening them.
Ambulances from Nakuru, Kakamega, Kisii and Kisumu have been reduced. Most vehicles in those fleets have been brought to Nairobi thereby exposing those areas to reduced capacity to respond to emergencies and disasters.
Mr. Albert Ruturi, the CEO is an old man who is over 75 years old. He is senile and dismisses people on tribal basis.
There’s a staff who was dismissed in an unlawful fashion and has sued the organization. The driver who was chase away like a dog without credible reasons filed the case against St. John ambulance in Mombasa.
Staff are transferred to different branches even twice in one year just to frustrate them to leave.
