Turkana County Government has promoted 841 health workers.
According to the County Health Chief Officer Dr Roberts Abok, this was just part of the County Government’s routine promotions.
“Turkana County Government has promoted 841 health workers and this is part of normal promotions and I want to congratulate all the health workers who have received the promotions,” said Dr Abok.
He said they were committed to fast-track promotions for the few health workers whose promotion has not been effected.
Health CEC Jane Ajele said this was part of Governor Josphat Nanok’s agenda to ensure the welfare of health workers is well taken care of.
She pointed out that this was the second lot of promotions with doctors having received their promotions a month ago.
Early this month, services in all health facilities in the county were brought to a halt after health workers went on strike over delayed promotions.
