After the nurses’ strikes countrywide, the Nairobi County clinical officers have now threatened to strike as well.
The health workers want the County Government of Nairobi to address issues of delayed promotions, reliable supply of drugs to health facilities and deployment of more health workers.
Reuben Raboso, the Chair of Kenya Union of Clinical Officers, pointed out that some of their members have stagnated in the same job groups for for over six years.
The health workers noted that they are not seeking for allowances but and designation of job groups, adding that officers should be confirmed after 6 months.
“We have some officers who have worked for over nine years without confirmation. County Service Board takes us in circles, there will be no services,” they said.
The county health workers said they have used all avenues to address their grievances but to no avail.
