Trouble is brewing at Radar Security Ltd as guards are now threatening to down their tools to force the management to address their plight. The guards have however appealed to the officials of the Kenya National Private Security Workers Union (KNPSWU) to come to their aid as they have been suffering in silence for fear of victimization.
According to many security guards who spoke to The Weekly Vision on strict conditions of anonymity, they claim that they work under unhealthy working conditions. They are pointing accusing fingers at the Managing Director Andrew M. Solomon and the Operations Director Terris S. Peters for allegedly failing to offer favorable working terms and conditions.
The guards claim that the management of Radar Security Ltd has been paying late salaries despite clients having settled their dues sometimes three months upfront. Currently, the guards are demanding two months’ salary arrears. The guards have however discovered that salaries are paid selectively with priority given to guards working at various embassies in Runda while other guards’ salaries are delayed for even two months.
The guards claim that they have been patient enough hoping the management will consider paying salaries promptly but the situation is instead getting worse. The guards claim that MD Andrew Solomon, the owner of the company is taking advantage of them, living a lavish life in Karen while the guards suffer.
