Infotrak Releases Tribal Percentage of Its Staff
Research company Infotrak has responded to claims that most of its staff are from the Luo community. Immediately after releasing its most recent opinion poll last week, reports by various blogs indicated that the company has the composition of its top management and the enumerators made up of an unusually high percentage of Luos. Similar remarks were also made during Jubilee’s rally at Uhuru Park. This was the list that has been circulating.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is Angela Ambitho
The General Manager is Tobias Otieno
Co- founder is Jerry Okungu
Senior researcher is Dr Adams Oloo
Qualitative and Head of Statistics is Daniel Obara
Senior Administration Officer is Lilian Awino
47 out of 51 enumerators are from one community.
However, Infotrak has come out to deny the allegations, with a well prepared list showing the tribal composition percentage of its staff. From the list provided, Luo’s only make up 20% of its work force.
It’s decision to release the list was however not received well by everyone. Some who commented expressed disappointment that the company had to respond to cheap gossip. Journalist Larry Madowo wrote,
It’s a crying shame that pollster @Infotrakltd has to do a tribal roll-call of its staff & management because of speculation & propaganda
Here is the summary as provided by Infotrak.
