The hotel had been trending for the better part of Wednesday after its alleged owner known as Jaymo was heard harassing and threatening a female employee who was demanding her unpaid salary.

The video has since gone viral and it showed the alleged owner hurling insults at the female employee while explicitly stating that he would not pay the woman what he owes her saying that he even knew President William Ruto.

“I am not paying you. Mshenzi wewe, kwani unadhani unaeza nipeleka wapi? I talk with the president, my friend,” said the man while pointing to what was presumably a picture of him and President Ruto on his phone.

(If I decide you can end up with big criminal charges in a court case that you cannot get out of. You will be calling me begging to be let out. I have already told you, I will not pay you).”
