Prospect slams trade unionists’ visa refusal
Wednesday 30 May 2012
General secretary Paul Noon has written to the Home Secretary strongly protesting at the Border Agency’s decision to deny entry to the guests from sister union Ketawu, Prospect said on Wednesday.
The letter came after 500 delegates unanimously carried an emergency motion expressing disgust at the decision.
Ketawu women’s president Agnes Githumbi and national chairman David Songok were perceived as at “risk of flight” because they did not have enough money in their bank accounts, according to the union.
Their appeal, supported by Prospect, was also rejected.
“Maybe if they had said that they were here to see the Olympics rather than declare themselves as trade unionists, they would have been let in,” Mr Noon suggested.
Four in 10 Kenyans live on less than 80p a day. Since neoliberal state policies and rapid urbanisation allow little scope for jobs in the formal sector, 79 per cent of the labour force must try to eke out a living in the informal economy: here.
