One person has been confirmed deád at Royal Media Services offices and several others are undergoing treatment after suffering what is understood to be severe food poísoning.

The deád staff is said to be female cleaner attached to Citizen TV. At least five employees are currently in hospital over the issue. The employees working on the Christmas shift are said to have developed stomach complications after consuming food delivered at the office.

RMS management has spoken out on the matter. “We are deeply shocked and saddened to inform the public that one staff member has unfortunately succumbed to the illness attributed to the suspected food poísoning,” said RMS Managing Director Wachira Waruru. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of our deceased staff member during this difficult time.”

Mr Waruru said in keeping with holiday period working arrangements, the RMS engaged a private food catering company to provide meals for staff working during the Christmas shift. On Boxing Day December 26 2022, some of the staff complained of severe stomach pains after consuming meals served within the premises of the company.

He said the “serious case of food poísoning” affected a significant number of staff working over the Christmas shift. “Several staffers have also been hospítalized for the suspected poísoning,” he added. “RMS is providing all the necessary support to the affected staff and suspected food poísoning incídent is currently under investigation.”
