Joseph Njoroge was a digital social media strategist at Sportpesa.
As Kenyans wallow in the pain of losing a job, The Standard caught up with two individuals who have found themselves jobless in recent months.

Joseph Njoroge worked as a digital operator at betting firm Sportpesa before he lost his job. When The Standard spoke to him yesterday, Njoroge said the loss of his job left him dumbfounded.

“I worry for my two-year-old son. He will have to do without the medical insurance cover that the company provided for us. His birthday is approaching next month, but he will have to do without much that we could have provided,” said Njoroge.

Jane Minayo has raised her children single handedly. She used to deliver food for employees at Sportpesa. She is now at a loss after the company was closed.
