Chitayi Boniface THE UNION STANDS. Ladies and gentlemen, our strike is still on.
The govt has used all sorts of tricks to get a way out of this and
force the union to accept mediocre proposals but the union has remained
firm. They first used FKE,
Union of civil servants , KUMPAS, then they brought in an amorphous
group called the kenya health professionals society to water down the
negotiations. The union rejected these joint negotiations.The
govt has not been serious about negotiations.This is a war.we should be
ready for dirty tricks. The sideshows are now out.We must
refocus our energies on the struggle ahead.KMPDU will hit back in the
early morning.we will hit them hard. Ladies and gentlemen i welcome you to KNH, monday morning for our liberation march from KNH to Afya house then treasury . THE BLUE REVOLUTION CONTINUES. GOD BLESS THE UNION AND NATION.
The govt has brought this crisis upon itself. How does it pay doctors 60k gross which ends up being 31k after tax. The doctors who deal with deadly diseases on a day to day basis get a medical allowance of 1,500 shillings & no medical cover watsoever. The doctors have to right to strike and as a kenyan i support them.
Dr. Kimani DMS why do you render pay me before medicine where is your heart ? also What is the Future of Diagnostic Medicine?
Until the MP pay is lowered to net Ksh 250000, the meds and other professionals will keep demanding for more pay. The doctors and nurses are subject to harsh conditions, unresourced hospitals, aggressive patients and the list goes on. However, if the doctors is implemented as requested,they must be prepared to face the penalties for negligence and they have to fully commit to their work and not operating side clinics unless they have signed agreements with the primary employers.
How can the Govt say they are committed to health care in the country when: the budget for health care keeps shrinking despite better revenue collection and an ever growing population?
first yall all wrong for its MEDICINE OVER MONEY just think a body untreated could host some killer virus a baby will not become a adult from lack of medicine due to money if you are a Doctor cause of Money then do me a favor and retire I swear by Apollo the Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia and Panaceia and all the gods, and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfill according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant:To hold him who has taught me this art as equal to my parents and to live my life in partnership with him, and if he is in need of money to give him a share of mine, and to regard his offspring as equal to my brothers in male lineage and to teach them this art – if they desire to learn it – without fee and covenant; to give a share of precepts and oral instruction and all the other learning to my sons and to the sons of him who has instructed me and to pupils who have signed the covenant and have taken the oath according to medical law, but to no one else.
I will apply dietic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice.
I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody if asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.
I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favor of such men as are engaged in this work.
Whatever houses I may visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice, of all mischief and in particular of sexual relations with both female and male persons, be they free or slaves.
What I may see or hear in the course of treatment or even outside of the treatment in regard to the life of men, which on no account one must spread abroad, I will keep myself holding such things shameful to be spoken about.
If I fulfill this oath and do not violate it, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and art, being honoured with fame among all men for all time to come; if I transgress it and swear falsely, may the opposite of all this be my lot.
With the name “General Hospital” & “National Hospital” KNH is a kenyan shame. Its a part of the path to the gates of hell. Evil, corrupt & ever absent doctors. Negligent, arrogant, ignorant, incompetent…….hata ka mganga hatukanwi, naweza tusi wa KNH. Their salaries is derived from tax payers yet they concentrate more to private institutions & doctors’ plaza where they even receive more digits. A team should be put up to investigate these so called doctors.
@Kioko I agree with you regarding the MP’s salaries, they should not be treated as special breed of Kenyans, lets all be equal and the mps be taxed as the rest of Kenyans with no enumerations.
Where is the minister for Medical Services???
