Labour CS UKUR YATTANI now admits Kenyans who are working at the SGR are treated like dogs by their Chinese counterparts

Friday August 10, 2018 - Labour Cabinet Secretary, Ukur Yattani, has confirmed that Kenyans working with the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) are subjected to inhumane treatment by their Chinese bosses.

This comes barely a month after Government Spokesperson, Erick Kiraithe, denied claims that Kenyans were being subjected to slave-like work conditions by foreigners.

Kiraithe told Kenyans to man up and be like the Chinese and stop blaming the foreigners for their failures saying they should resign if they can’t handle the Chinese treatment.

Yattani revealed this when he appeared before the Senate Labour Committee chaired by Senator Johnson Sakaja.

The CS had been pressed to paint a true picture of what was happening at the SGR against a backdrop of denials of any cruelty against Kenyans by Chinese Ambassador, Sun Baohong.

He also disclosed work permits for migrant Chinese workers were not available for verification save for their residency visas.
