The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Ministries -

Ten se­cu­rity guards at the Malindi law courts yes­ter­day went on strike to protest against poor and de­layed pay.

They re­ported to work at 6am as usual, but did not wear their uni­forms or work.

Mo­torists had to open the gates by them­selves or wait for well-wish­ers to open them. At abround 10.30am, the guards met their su­per­vi­sor and some emerged from the talks in uni­forms.

One guard told jour­nal­ists guards are yet to be paid last month’s salary. He said they earn Sh6,500.

“We are not paid over­time and there are no de­duc­tions for NHIF. As if that is not enough, we are never paid on time,’’ he said.

The guard said their em­ploy­ers threaten to sack them when­ever they raise pay griev­ances. “We are al­ways suf­fer­ing here ,” he said.
