Nurses and doctors’ unions in Elgeyo Marakwet will from tomorrow (Monday) go on strike to protest the move by the county administration to scrap allowances for health workers on study leave. Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) and Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Union (KMPDU) said the Department of Health scrapped the allowance for 18 health workers without consultations. He added: “We shall not sit back and watch our members being discriminated against by the county government.”Public health workers Secretary general Martin Lokalis said the move will discourage health workers from pursuing further studies. However, Health Executive Kiprono Chepko said the workers on study leave do not deserve hardship allowance because they are studying in counties that are not gazetted as hardship areas. Chepkok said it was improper for the county government to pay the allowance to workers who are not operating within the county.

ALSO READ: A simple flu, cancer and deathHe was buried yesterday in Bundasi, Butula, in Busia County. For the better part of December 2017, the Weru TV journalist complained of a persistent flu, for which he took medication. By January, his symptoms of flu and fever were persistent, so he returned to the same hospital for a more elaborate check. “But after the cycle, the cancer cells in his blood were between 15 and 17 per cent (from almost 100 per cent). The doctors expected less than seven per cent so there would be no need for a bone marrow transplant,” Musundi says.
In the last couple of weeks, I have found myself in many death related situations-being notified of a death, at a funeral service, at a burial fundraiser-all serious matters to do with death. ALSO READ: CS Balala does it againOne thing that drives me absolutely bonkers is the constant requests for tales and reports of the actual death.

Apart from the few men biting dogs, there are serious men and women who go out of their way to feed and preserve them. We recently lost one such great man of God, Bishop Peter Njiri, the Presiding Bishop of the Kenya Assemblies of God (KAG). In his life and ministry, Bishop Njiri distinguished himself as a man of deep spirituality and high integrity. The good Bishop was an astute farmer and businessman who supported himself from his own sweat. We must avoid dog biting incidents that only feed the news media and instead focus on issues that progress the nation whether or not we get media coverage.

The question though is why, under the circumstances, Kalonzo has chosen cooperation with Jubilee. Emerging from another disputed election the opposition had chosen resistance against Jubilee, before the surprise handshake, which knocked the stuffing out of that approach. In the end, the handshake is a platform through which the country’s elite are jostling for power. By going into an arrangement with Kenyatta, Raila vacated his position as an opposition leader.

[DPPS]As he wound up an intense weekend tour of Meru County yesterday, Deputy President William Ruto appeared to be paying particular attention to areas in Mt Kenya where he is considered to have staunch support. “He wants to show he will not wait for President Kenyatta to give him a leg up in Mt Kenya region but will sell himself,” Ngunjiri said yesterday. “If he has Mt Kenya behind him, then it would be easier for him to get the Rift Valley vote in case another candidate from the region shows interest in 2022.

Which begs the question – was the “televised” March 9 “handshake” between NASA’s Raila Odinga and Jubilee’s Uhuru Kenyatta the ignition of a Kenyan revolution? Like it or not, Raila and Mr Kenyatta are the two most consequential political leaders in Kenya today. He can “unearth” the hatchet, and therefore doom the “revolution.” That’s why both gentlemen need each other. Raila and Kenyatta are doing what their famous dads didn’t do – set aside their differences and put Kenya first. Let me predict this – the 2022 election will plunge Kenya in an unprecedented inferno if the handshake fails to exorcise our tribal and corrupt genes.
