SAFARICOM SACKS CHIEF OFFICER IN HARASSMENT SCANDAL
Staff are still unsure what is happening because the said Director, is still operating from his office and signing official letters.
Yet word is rife, and staff in meetings have been told, that the Executive Committee member has been asked to leave after an altercation with the female employee with whom he was said to have been having relations with, was brought to light.
Unconfirmed reports also indicate, the said female employee, who is based in Thika, is expecting a child from the relationship.
The saga has fuelled intense speculation and gossip at Safaricom.
The listed telco has in the recent past taken a stern line against harassment in the work place, sexual or otherwise, although staff in the junior ranks, still complain of overbearing and sometimes abusive bosses.
A good number of the employees listed in the company's annual Sustainability Report as having been sacked go home because of harassment complaints in addition to the ones booted for corruption and fraud.
Insiders indicate that one lady has been identified to replace the sacked director and she should be jetting in on Monday.
