An employee had reached out and revealed slavery within the Mohammed Jaffer owned company that has turned poor Kenyans into slaves in their county.
The employees work without protective gear and their welfare is not a priority within Proto Energy management that is led by undocumented foreigners working in the country illegally.
” Reporting to work by 6:45 AM and leaving as late as 7:30 PM all this at a pay of 400 shillings with no overtime. The working conditions were very poor as we had no Personal protective equipment such as overalls and safety boots or gumboots” laments the employee.
“We have endured 7 months of hell. Workers have gotten injured and no one cares. You are either given permission to take yourself to the hospital at your own cost or sometimes forced to stay and work with no medical attention.” Adds the employee.
But a few interactions with employees working for Jaffer reveals fear as it is always hard for an employee to reveal what they go through without trembling and requesting their identity never to be revealed.
The lawyers that have reached out want the employees to be bold and they will sue the Mohammed Jaffer owned empire that has managed to buy everyone including MP Junet Mohammed who is his link in distributing bribes especially those aimed at scuttling investigations into his monopolies.
However, Mohammed Jaffer is also known to compromise courts making us doubt if any legal action will ever quench his thirst for becoming richer through any means.
Multi-billionaire Jaffer is also the founder of the MJ Group, East Africa’s largest provider of clearing and forwarding services. His GBHL owns a grain terminal that specializes in the discharge and handling of bulk grain cargo at the Port of Mombasa. For long, he’s been a monopolist and competitors crying foul for being undermined as he uses his influence in the system to tune things to his favour.
Jaffer’s influence is not limited to the executive arm of government. He is reputed to be close to high ranking judges in the judiciary including Court of Appeal judge Alnasir Visram. So strong is his influence that one of his sons is employed at the Court of Appeal.
It is the reason Jaffer wins a majority of cases filed against him or any of his firms; be it a demand by KRA for back taxes or against Kenya Railways whose huge tracts of land around the port of Mombasa GBHL has irregularly been used to secure bank loans amounting to a staggering Sh45 billion.
Jaffer’s arms are extensive, he also owns the famous Ajab flour and many others.
