Fresh wrangles have rocked the Dock Workers Union over the recent restructuring programme conducted by the Kenya Ports Authority. A section of union members are unhappy with the general secretary Simon Sang who allegedly wrote to KPA managing director Gichiri Ndua asking him to revoke all the appointments. He calleed for fresh reappointments.
In a letter dated May 29, 2012, Sang, said the programme 'leaves a lot of pending questions'. Sang said several departments have complained over the manner in which the appointments were done. The rival faction, led by Mussa Jaka, accused Sang of writing the letter in bad faith.
Jaka said Sang wrote the letter because 'some of his people' were not appointed. He accused Sang of trying to divide the workers along religious and tribal lines. Plans to storm the DWU offices in Sparki yesterday morning did not take place. Jaka claimed he prevailed upon the faction against the move.
