This ‘Racist’ Ad in Yesterday’s Daily Nation Has Angered Kenyans


Kenyans on Twitter were yesterday left fuming by a job listing that appeared on the Daily Nation.

The advert was seeking 12 sales executives and 2 store keepers for ‘A well established and leading IT retail company’.

Applicants for the sales executive position were required to be of ‘Asian origin’ with no experience needed.

There was no such requirement for the store keeper.


Commenting on the ad, Boniface Mwangi stated that it was against the constitution to hire based on ethnicity or race.

Others called it ‘disgusting’, wondering why Nation published it in the first place.
