Staff of Villacare Limited wrote to Kenyanbulletin.com complaining that they haven’t been paid their February salaries and that the management led by Daniel Ojijo is taking advantage of the Coronavirus situation to send most of them home without any other valid reason.
We have not been paid since February and the boss is happy to take advantage of the CoronaVirus situation to avoid paying us a salary for work done in Feb and March.
He has already made most of us redundant – the whole of April using Covid-19 as the excuse not to pay their Feb+Mar salaries.
They gave us a letter, but we all know it is a lie if we weren’t paid in Feb and his practice is always to pay half salary at a time. we will not be paid! and he will use corona as the perfect cover
The company has money but the guy is too greedy, he simply is not keen on settling salaries. We all have more debts than the Kenya Government and he still demands some members work, with no pay.
Can the Government come in and help us with this? everyone who complains gets fired and we have nowhere else to turn to. is it possible you help highlight our plight?
How can we be sent on Mandatory unpaid Leave for the month of April, with no pay for February and March.
Covid19 has not affected our industry yet in terms of rents to be collected.
Covid19 was not an issue in February and March 2019, why have we not been paid?
The boss transmitted KRA, NHIF etc for the whole company, to keep KRA happy, but we are unpaid and hungry.
We need your help before the government announces any shutdowns, we need your help for the government to be involved in saving us, from this evil and cruelty,
He is a billionaire, he can afford a good life, but it should not be at the expense of his employees. Many of us cannot even afford to buy food. Now we are at home with this letter attached promising that we will have our pay for Feb and March combined.
We spoke to the team at the office and the accounts, and they confirm this is a lie,
We all know he is waiting on Coronavirus Shutdown so that he doesn’t pay our salaries and can take advantage to fire us with no terminal dues, using April as the cut off month.
HELP US PLEASE. attached is the letter

A lot is going wrong, but allow this to be the first in a series of posts regarding the company and its illegal HR practices.
For starters, the previous and current HR manager is a fellow who harasses women employees for sex and men for money in exchange for favour at work.
The last HR manager was relieved of duty due to sexual harassment of junior employees, the current is no better, but he is being protected by the system.
The last team to report cases of sexual harassment were all systematically fired from the company one by one, under the pretense of performance. Rather than face the issue, the victims were punished.
There’s more rot in this company than is known and more will soon come out. Most of us know that we might not be employed here anymore as he will look for new cheaper employees.
Everyone once fired, claiming their service and terminal dues is a mess, some are still waiting two months later.
This guy is too greedy and is ruining the lives of his employees
