Kalekeni:  To check in companies

MCTU General Secretary Dennis Kalekeni said in an interview the move comes after observing continued cases of abuse in the labor force.

Kalekeni said the cases of workers’ rights infringement are worrisome and added that the body is putting up measures aimed at ending abuse in work places.

“Any company to be found abusing their staff risks closure. The increase in cases is worrisome and we are putting up measure to ensure both workers and employers know their rights and responsibilities,” he said.
