Flowers worth millions of shillings are going to waste in Naivasha-based Karuturi Farm because the workers are on strike over two months salary arrears.
The workers have vowed not to return until their salaries are paid. One of the workers yesterday said they have suffered long enough and are ready for any eventuality.
The workers called on the government to urgently intervene in the matter. "We have not received our November salaries, there is no water in the camps, the sewer is flowing all over and our children are sleeping hungry," said the worker.
Ferdinand Juma from the Kenya Plantation and Agricultural Workers Union, Naivasha branch accused the farm management of failing to keeps its promise. "We have had agreements with the farm management, which are never fulfilled and the workers have decided to permanently go on strike," he said on the phone.
