Saturday, May 30, 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Government has taken action days after the management of Fairmont, the Norfolk Hotel in Kenya, closed down and fired all its employees.
The drastic action prompted Solicitor General Kennedy Ogeto to write a letter to the management seeking an explanation for their actions.
“This matter is of public importance and great concern to the Government and in view of the Attorney General’s mandate to promote, protect and uphold the rule of law and defend the public interest, this Office should be very grateful if you would provide it with clarification regarding the said media reports and complaints from employees, including on the veracity thereof and the justification for the taking of such action, if this is the case,” Ogeto asked the management.
In a memo that circulated early this week, the management resolved to close down all hotels in Kenya, because they have been unable to pay salaries due to the effects of COVID19.
