This post first appeared on omundukhumundu.wordpress.com, a blog associated with Robert Alai. Allegedly, the author had received an email from a staff member at Razco ltd, the makers of the famous brand of ice creams, Lyons Maid.
Apparently, the management has been mistreating African workers in terms of pay. Asians tend to be favoured, with their pay almost 3 times their African counterparts. Here is the letter.
Hi,I would like to expose a case of modern day apartheid right here in Kenya. This happens at Razco ltd, Baba Dogo Road, the makers of Lyons Maid ice cream. Last Saturday, the Managing Director Mr. Raza Jagani TOLD ONE OF THE WORKERS THAT INSTEAD OF HELPING AN AFRICAN, HE WOULD RATHER HELP A DOG! He was asked on Monday 7/1/2013 if he made the statement and he again affirmed that he said so.Razco salaries are a case of skin colour determining how much one gets paid. The Asians who are managers earn 150,000 Kshs and above (tho some are semi-literate) while the African Managers get 35000 and below. Sample this:
Singh 120000, Dinesh 200000, Dipak 180000, Mohammed 200000, Kalpesh 120000.
Dispatch manager 42000
ice crem manager 40000
yogat manager 62000
grocery manager 36000Please expose these shameless employers.
