Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka has asked the Council of Governors to work with leadership of medical workers to find a lasting solution to the current strike.
He said the ongoing stalemate is unhealthy and also puts in danger the lives of millions of Kenyans, especially now when we are battling Covid-19.
“Let Council of governors agree with the health workers leadership, we need them to resume back and help millions of suffering Kenyans,” he said.
He noted that millions of Kenyans are at risk of contracting the global pandemic now that majority health facilities have closed down and majority Kenyans can’t afford treatment in private medical facilities.
“Let CoG agree with the medical workers leadership to end the over two months go slow, it impacted negatively on majority Kenyans who depend on public hospitals for survival,” he said.
Lusaka spoke in Ejinja Village, Butsotso Central Ward in Lurambi Constituency, Kakamega County during the funeral service of Florence Oyiela Sakwa, mother to NYS Director General Matilda Sakwa.
CoG Chairman who is also the Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya, his Bungoma Counterpart Wycliffe Wangamati were present at the event that was also attended by Interior PS Karanja Kibicho among others.
