John Maina Muthoni, the 2NK driver that got fired for driving students to a police station after they started smoking bang in his vehicle has decided to expose the impunity of the Sacco
According to John, the Sacco doesn’t care about the welfare of it’s drivers. It treats them like trash, pays them peanuts and steal from them too.
He alleges that the much he could earn in a day was Ksh 500 with most of the times taking home only Ksh 250. This is because they are paid Ksh 250 per trip and most of the times he could manage to do only one trip a day. The salary is then paid monthly subject to many deductions making him bag home Ksh 4000 only a month.
He admits that this salary was to little that it could not cater for his family needs. His wife had to chip in and do manual jobs like digging other people’s farm earning KSh 300 which was even more than his salary.
He sadly tells on how the Sacco deducts NHIF, NCCF, Tax, Insurance and other deductions but does not submit them to the relevant organisations as they claim. You only realize when you go to hospital that your NHIF has never been paid. When a driver dies, their families get nothing from the insurance kitty despite the hefty deductions.
More to that, they penalize a driver between Ksh 500-1000 whenever a customer makes a complain about him. They do so without hearing their drivers side of their story.
This leaves us with the question, are there any regulatory bodies governing these matatu Saccos, because this is just pure impunity.
