5. Bata

Worst paying jobs in Kenya

Its pure misery for Bata Shoe Company employees, especially those working at the company,s shop outlets in various towns in country. Branch managers in this company get better retainers and commissions will junior employees only survive on commissions which is simply peanuts.

6. Kencall


Kencall is one of the leading call centre companies in Kenya. What is shocking is that, despite the owner raking billions from clients, the company pays its employees peanuts, we can call it ‘change’ for someone working in any Kenyan counties.

Most of the employees in Kencall are paid as little as Ksh 15,000 and are overworked.

Final Remarks on these worst paying jobs in Kenya

To avoid facing such kind of exploitation, I would advice the youth in Kenya to strive and start their own businesses instead of relying on white collar jobs. Start where you are with what you have and you never know, you might be the next Bill Gates!


  1. i do not blame the employer as this is because they ministry of labour and worker reps starting from COTU to individual unions are not interested in the welfare of workers but rather what they can siphon from the worker as union dues on a monthly basis.

    • sure, everything has been left barely on the hand of individuals to handle the grievances. today unions, representatives and other bodies are just branded organizations corned with mandate which they have no derivatives nor they cannot handle. its only those who have a revelation of the parable of “Lazarus and the rich man” can understand the pain of mwananchi and the excitement of the mwenyenchi.

  2. True,I started my mtumba business after uchumi collapsed…today i get profit of…60000 per months.. Fro uchumis 15000….call for proof..0722970331
