Medics comprising of technicians and other lower cadres of professionals have protested over unexplained deductions in their salaries.
Speaking to the Press at Jevanjee Gardens in Kerugoya town yesterday, they said a Sh3,850 risk allowance and Sh20,000 extraneous allowance has been deducted for the last two months without notice.
"We are professionals and when you deduct all our allowances leaving us with peanuts, how do you expect us to survive?" they asked.
However, while confirming the anomalies, Health Executive Joyce Muriithi said steps have been taken to address the issue.
"This has been caused by a technical hitch within the computer section where payrolls are processed. We are addressing the issue and those affected should submit their documents to the accounts, salaries and computer departments," she said.
