- The workers were fired in a general retrenchment exercise by management of the University
- The University paid the affected workers their one month salary and given three days to vacate their posts.
About 67 junior and senior staff of the Central University College have been fired over what management claim to be a general retrenchment exercise.
According to a Mynewsgh.com report, all the affected staff were fired via text messages and given only three days to vacate their post.
This has angered the workers who are mostly members of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), and have worked for the University for close to 19 years.
The report says the dismissed workers are from various departments of the University at the Mataheko and Miotso campuses.
In a Whatsapp group conversation which has been cited by Mynewsgh.com, a senior member of the University who was clearly not happy described the treatment meted out to them as insensitive and inhumane.
The senior staff lamented that some of the affected members have over the years worked hard to put the institution at its current state, and wondered why they should be fired via text messages and given one month salary.
The staff member revealed that majority of the affected workers contracted bank loans last year, which were duly approved by management only for them to be dismissed in January.
He also wondered how they will settle their indebtedness to their banks.
“Pastor Charles some of us are not happy that you are saying truly CU has done her part for some of us and still doing to others. If you think since CU has done her part, this is not the time to make such a comment…this is hypocrisy if you ask me,” one of the angry staff in a voice note said.
She also added, “People are aggrieved, if you think you are a pastor and a child of God what you need to do is when they started sacking people you should have gone to represent people by telling them that CU has done its part but people have also done their part.”
The angry staff who could not control her emotions lamented that most of them sacrificed for the University and were cohabiting with snakes and other deadly reptiles, yet they have been treated with disdain.
