The workers claimed that they had gone for months without being paid their salaries, citing the frustrations they had gone through while trying to recover their money.

‘Am writing to ask for your help. I’m an employee of Triple5bet and it’s very sad man that for six months now the owners have refused to pay us and when you ask for salaries you are threatened. Just sad. Some of us nyumba zimefungwa and our kids can’t even go to school. Six months of not even a coin.,’’ one of the posts read.

The workers, who claimed to be more than 20 noted that they had gone for six months without pay and were therefore seeking means of recovering their money.

‘But tukipata laywer to help us itakua poa.Imagine 20 plus staff all claiming six months salary,’’ the employees stated.

Despite being a man of means and portraying himself as a giver and a helper, the businessman is said to be the opposite when it comes to his employees.

His other businesses which include rising TV station, TV47, and MKU, have had a good share of controversies with workers complaining of being paid peanuts despite helping him make billions.
