Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has been summoned to appear before the Employment and Labour Relations Court for failing to honour a directive to pay doctors their salaries and dues.
Ngilu is summoned alongside the County Service Board Secretary, CEC Health and CO Health for failing to pay Doctors their salaries and dues as ordered by the Court on 5th October 2021.
“The four must show cause why they should not be punished for disobeying the Courts directions,” said Justice Monica Mbaru.
Through Lawyer Henry Kurauka, the Doctors’ Union, KMPDU applied for warrants of arrest for the four for disobeying court orders.
KMPDU accuses the County Government of unlawfully stopping the payment of salaries to 19 doctors from July.
The Union maintains that the said doctors applied for 2 years full time paid post graduate study leaves and the same was approved by the County Government.
