Janet Mbugua happy after Mike Sonko suspended Chandarana supermarkets
By: Sam Mr - August 2, 2018
Former Citizen TV news anchor Janet Mbugua has applauded Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko after he revoked Chandarana Supermarkets licenses’ after a ‘racist’ email went viral.
The leaked email from the supermarket was instructing managers to focus on the white clientele, a thing that turned ugly for them once it hit social media.
Mbugua said that it’s time leaders stand up against racists in the country since it has been an on going thing for sometime.
“In as much as I don’t think what Sonko did completely solve the issue, cancelling licenses means affecting businesses, means affecting the employees of this company meaning they don’t have work. This is what I will say, the Governor made a strong statement by saying ‘You will treat our people with respect’ and for me, I feel like that is one of the solutions. For leaders to stand up and say ‘Look you are welcome to work in our country, have your own companies and build your own empires but don’t mistreat our citizens.’” said Janet in her popular Vlog.
She went on:
“I feel like we need more leaders to stand up and say that …because it’s not just the leaked emails or the apology it’s the nature of how a lot of these companies treat Kenyans. It’s the nature of how the way racism is engrained in these companies; sometimes it’s subtle, sometimes is in your face,” she said.
