Court reinstates Kenya Re's chief executive - Business Daily

NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya's employment and labour relations court has reinstated Kenya Reinsurance Corp's sacked chief executive Jadiah Mwarania, the Business Daily newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The company, which is commonly known as Kenya Re, offers re-insurance services to firms across Africa and the Middle East. The chairman of its board said in March that Jadiah Mwarania, a 27-year veteran at the company, was sacked for non-performance.

Mwarania moved court to challenge the sacking and the judge ruled in his favour last week, the paper reported. It quoted his lawyer Judith Guserwa saying Mwarania had resumed work on Monday this week.

The chief executive was not immediately available for comment.
