BY EURIDICE NZIOKA,NAIROBI, 31ST MAY 2018-.Recruitment of Cuban doctors by the government will gone on after Employment and Labour Relations Court declined to suspend the process.
in his ruling on Thursday ,Judge Onesmus Makau refused to issue an order sought by a government doctor seeking to stop the deployment of specialist Cuban doctors to Kenyan hospitals on grounds that their credentials have not been scrutinized to ascertain suitability.
The petitioner Dr Samson Misangi, who an assistant director of medical services and a consultant surgeon had stated that the doctors set to be deployed in Kenyan hospitals from the first week of July had not been subjected to a competitive process before being hired.
He further questioned huge amount of money that they will be receiving in salaries.
The Cuban doctors were set to start arriving in the country from July 7 ahead of deployment to hospitals managed by county governments across the country.
The Ministry of Health recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Council of Governors to provide houses for the doctors as the national government pays their salaries.
