The Association of Protective Security industry has challenged the government to operationalize the security wages Council, this comes as the Association disagreed with media reports express by the CEO of Private Security Regulatory Authority in the recent past.
Speaking to journalists in Nairobi today, the Chairman of the Association Mr. Cosmas Mutava, said the Association appreciate paying the security guards in accordance with the law as set out by the ministry of Labour, however it is not the mandate of Private Security Regulatory Authority to set up the minimum wage and the Association feel that the Authority is usurping the role of the ministry of labour.
“It is expected the statement appearing in the media was a decision of the Private Security Regulatory Authority board and not one from the CEO of Private Security Regulatory Authority as individual” Cosmas Mutava statement reads in part.
The Chairman of the Association Mr. Cosmas Mutava said “we request Private Security Regulatory Authority to supply us with the list of accredited Schools where over 1.2 million security guards will be trained”.
