Report: Court stops African Trade Insurance Agency from firing CEO

The Employment and Labour Relations Court stopped African Trade Insurance Agency from firing its CEO before his initial term expires, the Daily Nation reported.

CEO George Otieno's term is set to expire in 2021, but the company reportedly amended the terms of contract to 3 years from 5 years. African Trade Insurance Agency advertised the position while Otieno was still in office, and the CEO did not get an opportunity to apply for the position.

Justice Maureen Onyango said the company's move was "unconstitutional" and "discriminative." The justice ordered lawyer Titus Koceyo, who filed the labor dispute, to serve African Trade Insurance Agency and Kenya's attorney-general with the court documents for a May 27 hearing.

"Pending hearing and determination of the suit filed by Koceyo for the [African Trade Insurance Agency] CEO status quo should be maintained," Onyango ruled during an ex-parte hearing.
