Doctors in Nyeri set to go on strike as county fails to address grievances

What you need to know:

  • The doctors cited persistent failure by the county government to address their grievances.
  • They said Nyeri County Referral Hospital needs an average of 18 practitioners yet only four have been absorbed.
  • The union has further accused the county of rejecting doctors appointed by the Ministry of Health.
  • Efforts to reach the County Health Executive Charles Githinji were not successful.

Doctors in Nyeri are set to down tools on Friday for what they have said is poor staffing, delayed salaries and failure to give them study leave unless the county addresses their grievances.
