At least 300 clinicians in Homa Bay went on strike on Friday in support of colleagues they claimed were fired by the county.
Speaking to journalists at Homa Bay County Referral Hospital where they held demonstrations, branch Secretary Philip Mbom and Treasurer Felix Ouko said their employer has frustrated them.
"Affected members have failed to execute their responsibilities, including feeding their families and paying school fees, due to unpaid salaries," he noted.
The Secretary said they started by writing a letter on their grievances and followed with a strike notice to the County Secretary, the health department and the Public Service Board.
But PSB chairman Daniel Ogada denied firing any health workers, rubbished the strike and accused the two officials of misleading their colleagues as investigations into salary payments were ongoing.
