Doctors in Mombasa will down their tools following accrued salaries and allowances.
Kenya Medical Practioners, Pharmacists and Dentist Union-KMPDU Mombasa chapter Secretary General Dr. Abidan Mwachi says the county government has failed to honour their collective bargaining agreement for years.
Mwachi says they will today (Monday) issue a strike notice to the county government until their demands are fully adhered to.
Dr. Mwachi also says doctors want a tangible medical cover an issue the county government has totally ignored.
They have vowed to paralyse all the health activities in all public health facilities in Mombasa county.
“Medical insurance for doctors and all medics in the county is an issue that needs not to be discussed at this moment but fulfilled immediately,” Dr. Mwachi said.
