President William Ruto on Online tasks work

The internet-based task marketplace Remotasks announced recently that it will no longer be operating in Kenya as of March 8, 2024.

This change has confused many people, and they are worried about their futures on the network.

Users received a notice saying, "We are ending operations at your current location... The payment account you put up on your profile will be used to receive payments for the task you have completed." 

Workers now fear for their financial security as a result of this sudden move, which also raises concerns about the future of comparable platforms in the area.

Numerous people have expressed concerns and frustrations regarding the abrupt stop of activities.

"I relied on Remotasks as a source of income to support my family," said a user who preferred to be anonymous. "I'm concerned about my financial situation in light of this announcement."

The choice to end operations has also spurred conversations about the wider ramifications for Kenyan online job portals.

Many people are looking for work on sites like Remotasks as remote job alternatives grow in popularity.

The abrupt shutdown has brought attention to how vulnerable workers who rely on these platforms for their jobs are.

Users are looking for more information about the rationale behind the decision and the actions that will be taken to support affected workers, even though Remotasks has provided contact information for their support staff to answer any questions.

A rising number of people are calling for online task platforms operating in Kenya to be more accountable and transparent in light of these events.

Employees are calling on employers to put their health first and offer sufficient assistance during periods of change.

The consequences of Remotasks' decision are still being felt, which serves as an indicator of the difficulties encountered by employees in the dynamic world of online employment.

Affected people are left with doubts about their future and hope for quick fixes and assistance from the platform and appropriate authorities.

In January, Remotasks gained popularity after a Kenyan ICT student was shown on camera telling President William Ruto about his experience working remotely on the platform and earning over Sh45,000.

The other four tasks on online platforms will also leave the market due to business conditions. 

Then, an enthusiastic Ruto exploited Brian Kipchumba's success to inspire other young people in the nation to embrace online remote work in order to combat the widespread unemployment that is currently occurring.
