Kenya: Two Finlays Bosses Lose Jobs For Sexually Harassing Female Employees

A famous renowned company, Finlays Kenya, has suspended its terms with two bosses after a documentary from the world-famous media company, British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) went viral, exposing them to have been exploiting women sexually in the company.

James Finlays Kenya, a firm that is located in Kericho, Kenya, and well recognized for its tremendous work of exporting tea from Kenya, has terminated contracts with two famous bosses who were caught taking advantage of females who were in search of employment to exploit them sexually.


The two bosses, Mr. Chebochok and Asavara, were caught unaware of demanding sex from female workers in exchange for higher positions and rankings within the company.

Through the BBC documentary, the two were also accused of infecting the women with HIV/AIDS in return for the jobs they were acquiring to make ends meet, exposing them to a miserable life of dealing with the deadly disease and a life full of regrets.


Finlays made a statement that they have terminated their contract agreement with John Chebochok’s company, Sislo Holdings, and John Asavara, who was involved in the traumatizing investigative documentary from the BBC.

The firm articulated that it is a firm of principles and won’t allow malicious actions to take place within the premises. Therefore, it has started an internal investigation into the issues and reported the matter to the authorities. And let the police carry on their investigations into the matter and take action as soon as possible.

The firm further added that they have absorbed the 300 innocent workers from Sislo Holdings into Finlays in order to allow them to continue with their daily livelihoods unaffected.

Finlays Kenya was not the only firm that was mentioned in the documentary; there were also two other tea exporters, Unilever and Lipton Tea and Infusion.

The high cases of unemployment have caused a lot of female intimidation and regret that has kept rising in Kenya since the employers take advantage of vulnerable female job seekers as a tool to use them in order to grant them the jobs they are desperate for.

Other than Finlays and the other two mentioned companies, there are a lot of such cases of exploitation going on at the back of the screens that have not been recognized yet.

The documentary by the BBC has therefore shed light on what is happening, and the government should use all its powers and authorities to deal with such culprits and diminish all these ill-actions.
