Stop Spreading Lies About Our Strike,Health Workers Tell Government


As health workers strike enters its fifth day the Clinical officers have slammed the government together with council governors for spreading what they term as lies about their ongoing strike.

In an exclusive interview with Ghetto Radio News Kenya Union of Clinical Officers Seceretary General George Gibore dismissed claims by Council of Governors that 22 counties have not bee affected by strike saying  health services are grounded country wide.

‘‘Its a big a lie, all the counties they have mentioned including Migori,Uasin Gishu,Meru,Makueni Machakos, Nairobi are all grounded in fact they should be busy resolving these issues we are requesting instead of peddling lies about the strike..Kenyans should be told the truth taht there is no health services in public hospitals,’’ Gibore said.

Meanwhile a crisis  meeting has been slated by Ministry of labour to try and resolve the stalemate.

According to Gibore the health workers are suffering and they will not entertain any promises from the employer.

‘‘Yes we have been invited for a meeting by the ministry of labour and there are some on-going discussions but still nothing has been resolved and what we are seeing as a union is lack of commitment  from the employer,’’ he added.
