Kidero confident of ending workers' strike

12 September 2013, 15:45

Nairobi - Nairobi governor, Evans Kidero, assured government workers their salaries will be paid on time.

Kidero was confident such assurances would end the two-week strike that has left Nairobi streets teeming with uncollected garbage and unserviced ablution facilities.

There has been concern the city was sitting on a health time bomb that would explode if the workers did not return to work.

The county workers have been ordered to return to work without fail effective Thursday or risk losing their jobs.

It has been reported the city plans to cut its workforce to 5 000 from the current 11 000 because of lack of funds.

One of the key grievances county led to the workers downing their tools was the delay in the issuing of their salaries.

During the deadlock it was feared the actions will have ramifications on the city, which besides being the capital, houses the headquarters of international firms and is the region’s economic hub.
