Cotu Secretary general Francis Atwoli had in April warned that Cotu would call for a mass withdrawal of workers and employers from NSSF should its representatives and those of the Federation of Keny Employers (FKE) be kicked out of the board. This is after MPs proposed amendments to the NSSF Act 2013. Nadome said that such a similar thing was being pushed at the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) and blamed a group of rogue MPs who were making amendments to bills. “We want the government to zero in on rogue mps now working on crafting these bills to serve their own interests,” he said. He urged the CS to call partners for social dialogue. “High time Yattani calls the social partners you cannot manage industrial relations without social dialogue,” he said. “As Kenyans workers at whatever cost we are not going to accept the exclusion from these bodies,” he said.
