Kenya: CSOs call for the protection of digital platforms workers rights

" Government shoud do more to protect the Dignity & Human Rights of Digital Platform Workers " 16 March 2024

Human rights bodies have condemned working conditions for Digita Platform African workers by foreign companies. They voiced the deplorable conditions compared to other continents according to labour laws such as Low wages, rights to articulate the issues facing them, and other concerns they have been deprived which has caused concern.

They decried that the bodies responsible for voicing out these concerns have been silent as the workers continue to suffer and lose jobs. Therefore this has caused concern, demanding action from the Kenyan government and key stakeholders to salvage the situation before it escalates to a more serious threat.
