DOC­TORS WENT ON A GO-SLOW

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

In Septem­ber, doc­tors went on strike, de­mand­ing six months’ salary ar­rears. This paral­ysed ser­vices at pub­lic hos­pi­tals run by the county. The doc­tors sus­pended the strike last month, fol­low­ing an or­der by the In­dus­trial court. Union sec­re­tary gen­eral Thu­ranira Kau­giria said it was iron­i­cal for Ay­isi to sign an af­fi­davit un­der oath claim­ing to have ad­dressed all their needs. The doc­tors said the county owed them Sh34 mil­lion. A re­port re­leased early this month at­trib­uted the fre­quent strikes to the lack of guide­lines to man­age health work­ers.
