BID TO CHANGE SUPREME LAW AND CEN­TRALISE HEALTH

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Parliament -

If the bill by MP Sang sails through, then it means the na­tional govern­ment will man­age na­tional re­fer­ral health fa­cil­i­ties, cur­rent county health fa­cil­i­ties and pharmacies, am­bu­lance ser­vices, pro­mo­tion of pri­mary health care and li­cens­ing and con­trol of ven­tures that sell food to the pub­lic. Un­der Ar­ti­cle 255(1)(i) of the Con­sti­tu­tion says a pro­posed amend­ment shall be en­acted and ap­proved by a ref­er­en­dum, if it re­lates to the ob­jects, prin­ci­ples and struc­ture of de­volved govern­ment. Mean­while, Kenyans on so­cial me­dia have asked the Pres­i­dent to en­sure strik­ing doc­tors are paid so that no­body else dies. Sev­eral peo­ple are re­ported to have died across the coun­try. Doc­tors de­mand the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the 2013 CBA, through which they will get a 300 per cent pay rise. Their work­ing con­di­tions, job struc­tures and cri­te­ria for pro­mo­tions will also be re­viewed.
