Ex-workers try to block sale

24 Apr 2007

More than 5,000 former employees of Telkom Kenya are launching legal action aimed at halting the company’s part-privatisation. The ex-workers have been battling for some time to reclaim money they say has been owed to them since the state postal and telecoms corporation was broken up in 1999. They are now campaigning to have the sale of Telkom shares stopped until their own case is settled, The Nation reports. The Kenyan government is planning to offload 60% of its Telkom stake later this year.
