Council of Governors Chairman, Peter Munya, has now thrown the buck back to President Uhuru Kenyatta saying the Governors are willing to comply with his directive if the funds are availed.
Munya said the stand of governors on withholding doctors’ salaries for the duration they were on strike will remain in force up until they receive funds to implement the President’s directive.
This comes just a day after the governor insisted that CoG would only pay doctors for days worked.
Speaking during an investments conference in Meru County on Wednesday, Munya indicated that it would take the CoG to meet and rescind the decision on releasing salaries and without which their stand holds.
President Uhuru Kenyatta, while on a tour of Kiambu on Wednesday this week, said the medics who were on strike from December 5, 2016 to early March this year, should be given their full salaries for that period.
