NAIROBI, Kenya May 28 – Tuskys Supermarket Managing Director Stephen Kamau has been accused of harassing family members who are co-directors of the supermarket by threatening to remove them from the company’s payroll.

Kamau’s co-directors Ann Wamaitha Gatei and Yusuf Mugweru Kamau have told the High Court through lawyer Phillip Murgor that they received a memo from the MD on May 20 asking them to show cause why they should continue being in the company’s payroll yet they do not render any services.

Murgor urged the court to summon the MD and order him to desist taking prejudicial actions against family members that could lead to further escalation of the conflict.

“The MD has threatened to remove the complainants from the company’s payroll against orders of this court,’’ Murgor argued.

But the MD through advocate Mirugi Ciuri downplayed contents of the memo saying: “This appears to be purely internal issues of the company. I do not wish to comment on it at the moment until my client gives me instructions.”

Mugweru and Gatei have also made a complaint against their co-directors, accusing them of financial mismanagement of the company.

Murgor made the allegations when the matter came up for mention and further directions after arbitration talks to amicably solve the dispute between family members over the control of the Tuskys Supermarket chain collapsed.

The family members now want the dispute heard and determined by the High Court from July 2 when the matter will be heard again.
