Written by on 30 August 2022

Murang’a Governor Irungu Kang’ata has promised to address the issue of salary delays for county staff as a matter of urgency.

He has assured the employees that he will work diligently to find a lasting solution to the problem.

Governor  Kang’ata regretted that there has been an outcry from the workers, who  have not been paid for the last three months.

Speaking during his first day in office yesterday, Kanga’ata  promised to look into the welfare of the workers, saying he will ensure they get their pay on time.

Addresses urgently

“It is wrong when staff go for three months without pay yet they are working. This can demoralise them,”  he said.

He also noted with concern that  cheques issued by the county government to cater to beneficiaries of the Nyota Zetu  Scholarship Programme bounced and the learners have been sent home due to arrears.

“This is an issue we need to address urgently and get the students back to school for them not to miss out on learning,” he noted.

“We will carry on with this programme based on the records we will get from the relevant office,” he added.

In regards to the health sector, county boss ordered for immediate purchase of drugs to be stocked in hospitals, regretting that patients are often sent to buy drugs from private outlets.
