BID TO CHANGE SUPREME LAW AND CENTRALISE HEALTH
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.
