He said his administration was willing and ready to pay the workers but its hands were tied by the commission. “When we get confirmation (from SRC) and receive the money then we will pay the workers because they are all entitled to a better life. They should, however, resume work and stop inconveniencing members of the public,” said Sonko. The workers, however, denied that SRC was to blame. On Monday, Kenya County Government Workers' Union Secretary General Roba Duba said the CBA had been registered at the Industrial Court and that all that remained was its implementation. Mr Duba said the CBA would see the workers benefit from more perks, including leave allowances and medical cover. “This is money we had agreed and registered with our employer, who is currently Governor Mike Sonko’s administration and it has nothing to do with SRC. We negotiated with the county government,” said Duba.
