New changes said to have been introduced at Safaricom PLC has made their late CEO Bob Collymore a trending topic on Twitter for the better part of today.
On Monday, tweeps, woke up with tweets on how they miss Bob’s leadership at the helm of the Telecommunication Giant.
The #BobCollymore trend, comes at a time Safaricom Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Peter Ndegwa has allegedly ordered a number of employees to re-apply for their current positions.
The alleged new policies at Safaricom PLC, forced the Central Organization for Trade Unions (COTU) under its Secretary Francis Atwoli to issue a statement.
In a strongly-worded letter by COTU Secretary-General Francis Atwoli , the organization labelled Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa as being “dangerous”.
“It’s insensitive and inhuman, for Mr Ndegwa to bring about drastic changes at Safaricom PLC while infringing on the rights of workers who have built Safaricom to what it is today. It’s also shocking that even though Mr Ndegwa is the first Kenyan Safaricom CEO, he remains the most dangerous CEO the company has ever had when it comes to protecting workers’ rights,” the letter reads
COTU further threatened to escalate the issue with the Safaricom Board of Directors should Mr Ndegwa refuse to cease the alleged violations of workers’ rights.
