Billionaire Jaswant Rai’s Sukari Industry Limited, situated at Riat Trading Center in Ndhiwa Sub County, is set to recommence operations on Monday following a four-day strike by its workers.
The laborers ceased work on Thursday, citing inadequate pay, payment discrimination, and substandard working conditions, among other grievances, which disrupted the company’s usual activities.
In a press briefing following a consultative session, the company’s Human Resource Chief, Edward Mungatana, acknowledged the importance of the concerns raised by the workers and stressed the need for their resolution.

Mungatana revealed that discussions were held with representatives from the workforce, the security team, and local political figures to address the issues at hand.
It was agreed that the workers would end their strike and resume work the following morning, with a structured plan in place for the factory’s reactivation.
Ndhiwa MP Martin Owino and Kanyikela Ward MCA Wanjala Kasere, who met with the striking workers, voiced their opposition to worker exploitation and urged management to heed their complaints.
Owino pledged to petition the National Assembly for an investigation into the factory’s operations based on the workers’ grievances.
This petition, once received, will be presented to the House Speaker, who will then appoint a committee to examine the allegations.
