An MP has moved to court seeking about Sh10 million for wrongful dismissal at the National Bank of Kenya #ticker:NBK.

Alego Usonga MP Samuel Onunga Atandi has sued the bank for Sh9,936,000 for the manner in which he was sacked nine months ago before attempting his hand in politics.

Through lawyer Nicholas Sumba, he faulted the bank for phasing out his position as director of institutional and transactional banking and laying him off with a Sh1.65 million package.

He argued that he was discriminated against by his former employer after it declined to voluntarily terminate his job under the early retirement scheme.
