Health unions seek governor Joho to salvage the situation in Mombasa
Striking Health workers in Mombasa now want Governor Ali Hassan Joho to end his silence over their strike demands.
Addressing journalists in Mombasa Nurses’ Union Secretary-General Peter Maroko vowed that health workers will not return to work until their grievances are addressed by the County government.
“I want to tell Governor Joho that nurses and clinical officers in Mombasa will not go back to work until our demands are met,” said Maroko.
He further warned the Council of Governors against playing politics and address the issue raised by health workers.
The Nurses have been on strike for the last 70 days a move that has paralyzed service delivery in all public hospitals within the County.
Maroko wants the government to compensate the families of nurses who have succumbed to COVID-19.
Their demands include leave allowances, employment of staffs on contracts to permanent and sensible as well as pending promotions for staffs.
