Residents from Mombasa County have continued to raise concerns over unsafe practices by a construction company at the Moi International Airport.
Despite the new rules and regulations put in place to help contain the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Mombasa County Government is allowing a French construction company called Sogea Satom (VINCI Construction International Network) to work and expose residents to the novel virus.
The Rehabilitation funded by the French Development Agency (AFD) and is conducted by French companies Sogea Satom and Razel-Bec.
The company continues to completely disregard the regulations by the MOH and is putting everyone at risk.
The Company has over 300 employees, all working in and around the airport. All these people come from different parts of Mombasa. They scramble to board the staff buses every day in and out of the Airport.
Only a few of the workers can be seen wearing face masks despite the government directive that makes it illegal in Kenya and the workers go about every day like it’s normal, “Social distancing in at almost 0,” a resident laments.
Their working areas are overcrowded putting each one of the employees at great risk of contracting the Coronavirus.
Residents want action taken as the company could be the next hotspot for COVID 19.
