Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) employees called off their six-day strike on Monday, after a crisis meeting with Information Minister Samuel Poghisio and his Permanent Secretary Bitange Ndemo. Speaking after the five-hour meeting, Poghisio said no employee would be sacked or victimised for absconding duty since last Wednesday when the strike started. He also said the ministry would ask the Treasury to pay Sh490 million owed to the workers in arrears.
“I have listened to them and in a way they had issues that we have agreed to address. This has ended the strike and people are expected to resume duty,” he said.
