EastMatt Fires Supervisor Seen Mercilessly Beating Female Cashier

By Virginia Mwangi / November 23, 2019 | 10:03 am




A video in circulation on social media and shared in this article of a woman teller being beaten up by her male supervisor at EastMatt Supermarket located in Kitengela is a clear show of the struggles women have to endure to keep a career.

The video of the lady who works at the Kitengela EastMatt branch leaves one wondering, would have the same violence have been meted if the teller was a man or is it because it was a woman and women are perceived to be of lesser physical strength than men?

At a time when the World is undertaking the #16daysofactivism where it seeks to break the culture of silence on violence meted on women, the video of the EastMatt teller raining blows on the cashier serves as the best reminder of the challenges women are faced and the gaps that are yet to be covered in the need to empower women.

Kenyans on social media have shared their disgust for the act revealed by the EastMatt Kitengela supermarket of the female cashier being beaten up by the male supervisor and are calling upon the Director of Criminal Investigations, George Kinoti, to act on the case.

EastMatt supermarket has also released a statement regarding the video of one of their supervisors in Kitengela supermarket beating up one of the junior staff, a female cashier while on duty.

“We as EastMatt condemn and Do Not stand for such heinous acts of disrespect against any of our staff and more so women,” the statement by EastMatt Kenya reads.

“The individual in question acted solely and has been suspended with a report officially being filed to the Kajiado County Police and are handling the matter,” EastMatt statement reads following the video, which has since gone viral, of their supervisor beating a female cashier.

The EastMatt supermarket cashier, seen receiving a blow in the video, has since gotten the appropriate medical care according to the notice published by EastMatt Kenya.

Kenyans have however demanded that the Kitengela EastMatt supervisor be terminated from working in the company and be made to face the law to ensure he serves as a lesson to others.

In an era where women empowerment is seen to have been climbing the ladder, violence against women has increased.
