Distressed Machakos Senator Agnes Kavindu’s driver Timothy Mutua Solavea is seeking justice after being dismissed from work ‘unfairly’.
Speaking to Mauvoo News Mutua said that he was on leave for 21 days and when he went to report to work on Friday he was met with a dismissal letter.
According to him, he does not know what he did wrong as he was reporting to work like any other day.
Mutua also claimed that he had a physical altercation with the former MCA Michael Mutuku, the senator’s manager.
“I worked for Kavindu since 2021 after by-elections and in 2022 I signed a five-year contract. All was well until June this year when she claimed that I had stolen her ring worth sh.200,000. I told her I did not do so and if she feels I did she should report it to the police,” Mutua said.
“My annual leave had come to an end and when I reported back I asked the manager to sign and acknowledge that I had reported back but he refused and instead gave me a termination letter saying my services would end 5th November. I chose to hang around but the manager and one other guy came after me with blows and kicks. They also took my work badge,” he added.
He disclosed that this is not the first termination letter as there was another one in June but he was reinstated after his lawyer’s intervention.
However, despite the reinstatement, he was not assigned any duty for three days.
The letter seen by Mauvoo News stated that the senator was re-organizing office thus the termination.
“I wish to inform you that I am reorganizing the office and your contract as a Driver of Senate Machakos County Office shall be terminated with effect from 5th November 2023 in accordance with the provisions of Clause 5 of your contract of employment dated 1 October 2022, “Read the letter.
