Striking Nairobi doctors to miss their salaries for December

By LILIAN MUTAVI December 28th, 2016 1 min read

More than 120 doctors in Nairobi county will not receive their salaries for the month of December for their participation in a nationwide strike.

The Nairobi County Governor Evans Kidero said only 54 doctors in the county, who did not participate in the strike, will receive their salaries.

Dr Kidero said the county health centres and dispensaries have been in operation after nurses resumed duty.

However, the governor said that the doctors had no grievances as they had negotiated with them during October strike.

“Our doctors had no reason to join the strike as we had already signed a return to work formulae in October. We will therefore not pay them as they did not work for us and we are their employer,” said Nairobi County Secretary Dr Robert Ayisi.
