RESIDENTS of Turkana county have accused Tullow oil and it's contracted companies over biases in hiring workers. Speaking to the Star in Lodwar town yesterday, Elizabeth Emuria, a resident said the firm's recruitment has been marred with favouritism and corruption.
"Those with money are being absorbed easily but the rights of poor who have skills to do any available job is ignored,"she said. "We have educated our children but because they don't know anyone, they remain jobless."
However Tullo Oil's senior communication advisor Mercy Kabangi dismissed the allegations as "cheap politics". She said the youth should explore available opportunities instead of searching for white collar jobs.
