You see hawkers selling pineapples on the roads near Thika that are the same size as those available at Del Monte's shop. I wonder where they source these pineapples.

KAKUZI PLC - PRESS STATEMENT

Quote:
The Sunday Times article refers to a British Estate in Kenya. We are not a British estate. We are a proudly Kenyan Company with 1,300 shareholders, the majority being Kenyan and have been trading on the Nairobi Securities Exchange for over 50 years.


When they talk of majority of the shareholders being Kenyan do they mean number of shareholders or ownership?

Quote:
Camellia had earlier stated that it does not control Kakuzi’s board or its day-to-day operations in a bid to distance itself from the agricultural firm’s troubles.

It has since deleted the demonstrably false claim, insisting that the Nairobi Securities Exchange-listed firm has a separate governance structure.

“It is managed by its own board of directors on behalf of its 1,300 shareholders, most of whom are Kenyan,” Camellia says of Kakuzi in its amended statement.

This law firm Leigh Day was also behind the suits against the British government for leaving un-detonated bombs and torture of Mau Mau prisoners in Kenya.

Kakuzi names new board chair and sets up Independent Human Rights Advisory Committee

The pressure is starting to bear.

Also, JKK finally joins the board.

I would really like to know the intrigues happening behind the scenes.

If the alternate avocado source for UK supermarkets is South America i think Kakuzi human rights violations pale in comparison...not belittling Kakuzi & Delmonte's guards & dogs attrocities

Witness tampering in rights abuse suit ‘untrue’, says Kakuzi

Quote:
“Kakuzi strongly refutes the accusations by KHRC that they are manipulating witnesses to weaken the human rights cases against Camelia Plc, a major shareholder in the UK,” said Kakuzi in a statement.

KHRC alleged earlier on Wednesday, “Kakuzi has done everything possible to thwart efforts by the affected groups to get justice.” Law firm Leigh Day has said that 79 Kenyans had launched a legal claim in the High Court in London against Camellia for alleged human rights abuses by security guards employed by Kakuzi, its Kenyan subsidiary.

“Kakuzi has been luring unsuspecting claimants to withdraw from the UK suit as well as engaging in unscrupulous compensation of the victims,” the Commission had said.

Along Thika Rd there are pineapples for sale on the roadside. They tend to be the same size as those sold in the Del Monte shop. Could this be a coincidence?

There are cases of pineapple theft reported by Del Monte. They have a dark past that seems to be worse than Kakuzi's.

In the past Del Monte has been accused of unleashing dogs on suspected pineapple thieves and trespassers.

Quote:
In 1980, a nine-year-old girl was killed when the Del Monte guards unleashed their dogs on her.

Scores of other people have since been attacked and seriously injured by the German Shepherds that guard the 13,500-acre fruit farm which produces 300,000 tonnes of pineapple annually. The pineapples and juices are canned for export to Europe, USA, and Japan.

Quote:
Mr Stephen Mburu Gichira was among four other people that had gone to steal pineapples at the Delmonte farm on Sunday when the company guards descended on them with kicks blows and clubs before directing their trained dogs to ‘maul’ them.


Link


Quote:
In 1999, Centro Nuovo Modello di Sviluppo (CNMS), an Italian human rights group, began a campaign for consumers in Italy to boycott Del Monte pineapples after research conducted by the group found conditions at the company's factory to be inferior.This campaign was backed by the Kenya Human Rights Commission, which stated that wages were not enough to meet basic needs, that living quarters and sanitation was "disgraceful," toxic pesticides deemed by the World Health Organization as "Extremely hazardous" and "Highly hazardous" were being used, and that the company was intimidating internal trade union leaders, among other concerns. In the past, Del Monte Royal had asserted that no evidence had been existent to corroborate CNMS' claims of any illness, disease of fatalities resulting from unsafe conditions.

It is also important to note that it is not only Kakuzi that will suffer from the ban but also avocado small scale farmers in Murang'a.

Quote:
Murang’a county assembly has formed a joint committee to investigate the reasons why avocado exported by Kakuzi Company Ltd have been rejected by some outlets in the United Kingdom.

The assembly’s speaker Nduati Kariuki want the committee to work expeditiously saying the company supports many livelihoods in Murang’a county through buying and selling of avocado from small scale farmers.
In a press release on friday, Kariuki observed that the reasons behind rejecting of avocado supplied by Kakuzi need to be known and if possible, a solution be attained so as to avert farmers from incurring losses.

The speaker observed that the loss of the market by Kakuzi will affect hundreds of families who have invested in avocado farming and were relying on the lucrative market being offered by the company.

“The Committee has been tasked to investigate among other issues, any criminal actions and violations of human rights, if any, by the employees or the management of Kakuzi limited irrespective of the positions they hold within the company.

“Such gross criminal acts should not be allowed to impact so heavily on the livelihoods of the people in Murang’a County and elsewhere.” Read part of the speaker’s statement.
