Nairobi County Volunteers Demand Payments


A group of Community Health Volunteers from Mathare is now demanding payment of their arrears by the Nairobi County government.

Speaking at Chatter hall,Priscilla Esther,from Mathare Kosovo Unit ,says they have volunteered for over ten years without pay.

She adds Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko had promised them Ksh. 8,000 monthly, a promise that has never been fulfilled.

Esther says only a chosen few were given Ksh.3,000 and not even the Ksh.8,000 promised by the governor.

The CHVs argue that despite having passion for the work ,lack of payment has become a challenge to them.

The CHVs provide Primary health care and promotional services.
