Nakhumicha says they have received Ksh.2.4 billion for payment of medical interns at the Ksh.70,000 monthly rate which KMPDU has since turned down, demanding the Ksh.206,000 set in the CBA.

She insists that the offer was still available until the end of the 2023/2024 financial year in June when review negotiations can be held.

She says the health ministry has got Ksh.3.5 billion salary arrears accrued from 2017 to 2024 June, which will be paid in five instalments.

Since March 14, the doctors have abandoned their duty stations and have been protesting the government’s failure to post medical interns and obey a 2017 Collective.
