Kirinyaga Governor Hon Anne Waiguru has landed herself in trouble over failure to address the plight of health workers in the county.
Doctors and clinical officers from Kirinyaga County joined nurses in protesting against the deplorable state of Kerugoya Referral Hospital. They demanded that Governor Anne Waiguru immediately reinstates all the 346 casual health workers who were sacked last month.
They complained that their lives and those of the patients are now in danger because of the filthy condition of the hospital and gave the governor 72 hours to meet their demand or face industrial action.
Already, four nurses have contracted hepatitis B and diarrhoea apparently for working in unhygienic conditions.
But Waiguru failure to address the plight of the Health Workers have placed her in trouble.
KMPDU has now issued a 7-day strike notice to Anne Waiguru administration.
