Workers at the Teita Sisal Estate in Mwatate work in poor conditions and are underpaid, a parliamentary committee has heard. Speaking during hearings by the Labour and Social Welfare Committee at Mwatate CDF Hall on Friday, dismissed workers said they were fired when they got injured at the company and were not paid their dues.
One of the victims, David Sanguli said he lost his limb while working in the factory factory and was given a dismissal letter when he returned to work.
After the hearing, the committee toured the sisal company. Committee chairperson David Were told the management to ensure employees work in a good environment.
