County strike leads to garbage piles

05 July 2013, 13:08 Suleimani Mohammed

Many estates in Mombasa are littered with garbage following a strike by county government employees.

A spot check at Kongowea estate revealed that heaps of uncollected garbage have not been collected since the strike set in .

Juma Omari, a chief of Kongowea location said that their estate is pilling with heaps of smelly garbage that is a sore sight.

Omari urged the Mombasa County Workers Union and the striking workers to solve their difference before the matter gets out of hand.

" Unless a deal is struck between Mombasa County government and the striking county employees, disaster is likely to set in especially the out break of diseases," said the chief. 

Mombasa county employees have turned down the offer of accepting a proposed payment of arrears in installments and have vowed not to resume work till their salaries are paid in full in regard to the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

Speaking during a telephone interview, Margret Kisiengo, a former Chairlady of the Local Government Workers Union said that the workers would continue with the strike until their demands are met.

"Our arrears must be paid in full as stipulated in the CBA", said Kisiengo.

The county government of Mombasa owes the workers  KES 481 milllion in salaries and allowances, but the current county administration has passed the woes facing the workers to the defunct municipal.
