Ezekiel Mutua speaks out after sexual harassment claims to his employees
Mutua clears the air
Appearing on NTV’s Sidebar, Mutua mentioned that, those were just false accusations as his office has never had an employee by the name Wambui.
He added that the accusations had no basis as in this era of social media anyone can construct false claims and label them against you.
Claims have no basis
“We have never had anyone like that (in our employment) before or during my term. So, that is a non-issue. I, however, expect it (fabrication of claims to make me look bad). For the last three years, we have raised the bar of moral standards very high. The woman’s claims have no basis. Anyone can sit anywhere and construct a false claim against you. Just ignore the woman’s claims,” said Mutua.
The lady in question (Nancy Wambui) had accused Mutua of sexually harassing her when she was working at KFCB.
“I am a former employee at KFCB. This ‘righteous’ ****** used to harass all female staff. He always insisted on long hugs and inappropriate touching. When I complained, I would be asked to quit. So, I did. All he did was masturbate in his corner office. Ezekiel Mutua, I am going to court,” wrote Wambui.
Asked on whether he was going to take legal action against the lady for tarnishing his name, Mutua said “Why would I take any legal action against that woman? The twitter account she used to publish those allegations is fake- a parody account. However, if she was a real person, then I would have taken her to court. The fact that no one went to court… Remember her post ended in: ‘Let’s meet in court’,”.
