250 health workers to be promoted

11 September 2015, 12:59 Jane Zack

Busia - Over 250 health workers in Busia County will be promoted, County Executive Committee Member for Health Maurice Siminyu has revealed.

Speaking during the free cancer screening and awareness exercise in Busia that ended Friday, Dr Siminyu said that failure to execute the promotions was due to delays in availing the personal files from Nairobi.

"It is good news that we have started receiving the files which had proved to be a challenge. We shall put you in the rightful position," Dr Siminyu told the workers.

He assured them that those who have pursued further courses or improved their academic qualifications will be designated appropriately.
