The Employment and Labour Relations Court has upheld Kenya Airports Authority's (KAA) decision to fire an employee who directed Interior CS Fred Matiang'i to queue at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Daizy Cherogony was ousted in 2017 after she asked the then Education CS to queue for security check when other passengers started shouting then the CS was allowed to pass without lining up.

Ms. Cherogony had moved to court seeking KSh 2.4 million in compensation for unlawful dismissal arguing that the employer had victimized her.

Justice Nzioki wa Makau dismissed the case saying the improper handling of Matiang’i was a sufficient reason for KAA to initiate disciplinary action against her.

"She was heard in terms of Section 41 and her rights under Article 41(1) safeguarded. Since there was cause for the dismissal and basis for summary dismissal on account of gross misconduct, the suit is only fit for dismissal,” said Nzioki.
