Mombasa medics take to the streets over salaries

26 August 2014, 21:02 Mbungu Harrison

Mombasa - Health services in the coast general hospital have been paralyzed on after unpaid medics took to the streets in demand of their five Months arrears.

The over 4000 medics held a peaceful demonstration headed to the county health headquarters to compel the county government to pay their pending salaries.

Addressing journalists after flagging off the strike The Kenya National Union of Nurses Dr,Seth Panyankoo said the nurses have not yet received any pay despite the expiry of an agreement with the county government ended on Friday.

Diabetic Patients among others and who had turned to the hospital for medication were on Monday sent home without being attended to.

''We came here and we were told to go,no one who is willing to attend to us,said Wahid Fahala a diabetic patient in the hospital waiting for dialysis.

The Mombasa county government has however confirmed to have received some cash from the treasury that will be transferred to their accounts by the end of the month of August.

We can confirm that the treasury has received some money which will be paid to the workers,said Tendai Mtana acting health executive in his office on Monday.

The hospital have ever since been hit by shortage of medication and staff a move that the union said has derailed efforts of delivering efficient and  health services.
