Strike has been the language that both governments listens to of late. Being a mode of communication it has both negative and positive effects. Negative effects face the patients seeking doctor’s and nurses’ attention while the positive effects are on the side of the health staff as their grievances are usually addressed.
The health workers in kitui county will commence a strike starting 18th this month to protest, among other things:
1. Failure by the County Government to re designate them
2. Poor working conditions.
3. Failure to promote them.
While this trend has been the norm almost in the whole country, kitui county seems to have adopted a wait and see approach, yet across the whole country the threee issues have been the reason behind strikes! We kindly request for Malombe’s administration to take action before the situation gets out of hand!
