County Workers Begin Strike, Demand July Pay

0 86

County government workers who have not received their July salaries have today begun  strike  a move geared to pile pressure on the respective county government to pay them.

In an interview with Ghetto  Radio News Kenya County Government Workers Union Secretary General Roba Duba says  about 20 counties  staffs are on strike and that they will not work until their salaries hit their account.

‘‘According to our record  27  counties have complied with our calls and they have paid workers other 20 counties are still playing politics with empty promises.’’ Roba said.

He further faulted some governors Machakos governor Alfred Mutua included  for not taking the matter seriously.

‘‘Governors like Mutua of Machakos, Prof Anyang Nyongo of Kisumu insist that they have no money  and they can’t engage our members,this is arrogance and we shall not allow it.’’ He added.
