Woman who made Matiang’i queue to remain sacked - court

By Babu Tendu | February 18th 2020

Daizy Cherogony, a former security officer at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, suffered a huge blow after the court upheld a decision to keep her sacked.

Cherogony had sued the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) for unlawfully dismissing her from her post and wanted to be compensated Sh2.4 million.

According to justice Nzioki wa Makau, the mishandling of Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, then Education CS, was sufficient reason for her to be dismissed.

“She was heard in terms of Section 41 and her rights under Article 41(1) safeguarded”

“Since there was cause for the dismissal and basis for a summary dismissal on account of gross misconduct, the suit is only fit for dismissal,” said the Judge.

In their defense, KAA said that, as an employee, she was required to be disciplined, respectful and courteous to clients.

They added that the former security officer’s actions caused a delay in departure of the flight by 32 minutes.

Her argument, however, was that she did not violate any of KAA’s rules and regulations.
