"The county public service board must ensure the remaining 300 who have not received their letters are promoted before the elapse of the 14-day ultimatum," he said.

They are demanding that the Sh92 000 monthly stipend that was promised to them by the Ministry of Public Health and Medical Services be paid after their strike in December 2011.
