Public hospital doctors in Embu have ended a three-week go-slow after the governor, Mr Martin Wambora, promised to pay their January and February salary arrears.
The medics who have been regularly camping at the governor’s office every morning said they would resume work after receiving a written undertaking by county secretary Josphat Ndwiga on the promise.
The Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) Upper Eastern secretary general Mark Ndung’u said they had been waiting to meet Mr Wambora.
Earlier on Dr Ndung’u had accused the county government of neglecting the health sector.
However, following the commitment, the medics assured that normal services at the hospitals would now resume.
