NIS Inspectors Concerned About their Safety
Some inspectors attached to the National Insurance Scheme say they are becoming very concerned about their safety and they are worried that the board of the NIS which is responsible for their appointment may not be taking their concerns serious enough. Inspectors today waited for hours at the NIS sports complex hoping to get an audience with NIS board members during their meeting.
The latest problem. Four of the inspectors including a woman have filed a complaint against a housing development company saying that on Friday last when they were carrying out their duties at the company, checking records and trying to get access to various documents, they were roughed up and chased from the company but not before security officials attached to the company pulled away all of their documents and prevented them from leaving the compound of the business for a while.
The inspectors said the men were armed and there was very little they could do. Complaints have been made to the police but now the NIS inspectors want the company’s board to take a closer look at the situation and put better systems in place that would protect them more. Officials of the company fingered in the incident were unavailable to offer comments today.
