Justice Nduma Nderi, however, did not specify the repercussions the county would face should it fail to address the directives issued by the court.

An industrial court has given Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyong’o’s administration until April 30 to address the staffing issues that have troubled the county’s health sector.

This after the court heard that a list of promotions of medical officers that was presented in court yesterday was not yet confirmed by the parties. 

Justice Nduma Nderi, however, did not specify the repercussions the county would face should it fail to address the directives issued by the court.

“The county government should confirm the list of promotions by April 30. They should not blame the court should they fail to do so,” ruled Nderi.

In January, the court directed the county to fix the health sector after it stopped plans by the health workers to go on strike. This was, however, pegged on directives that the county government implements the promotions.

Promotion

Yesterday, however, the court heard that some of the staff were yet to receive their promotion letters as directed by the courts.

In the suit, Nyong’o’s administration which was marred by frequent strikes of health workers had sought the courts intervention to ban them from going downing their tools.

The bone of contention pitting the medics against the county administration included the issue of promotions and review of their salaries.

The medics also want the new salaries arising from the promotions to be factored in their March salaries.

Lawyers representing the county government led by Ken Amondi told the court yesterday that money for promotions has been included in the supplementary budget.

The court expects Nyongo’s administration to comply with the court orders by also preparing about 876 letters of promotion to the health workers.
