Clinical officers demand registration of their union

By Halligan Agade

Clinical officers now want the registrar of trade unions compelled to allow them register their own union.

The group says this will enable them negotiate for better terms of services. The paramedics have threatened to take to the streets if their pleas are not granted.

Through their chairperson Peterson Wachira the clinical officers said that they have been deprived of the right of association by being barred from registering their Union.

The group appeared before Justice Nduma Nderi of the commercial court who directed that the matter be heard on the 13th of February.

The members of the proposed Kenya union of clinical officers argue that they are working under very challenging conditions including working for 24 hours a day every week yet they cannot agitate for better terms of services as they lack a voice.

And it was drama in court as a murder convict turned against High Court judge raining insults on her immediately after his conviction.

Josiah Nyangeri Oreri was convicted of killing his girlfriend, a Technical University student only identified as Elizabeth in the 2004.

Judge Roseline Korir while delivering her judgement said Oreri had then attempted to commit suicide leaving behind a suicide note which solely implicated him to the murder.

Meanwhile, a man who has lived behind bars for over six years has been acquitted of murder charges. Evans Ogola was all praises after Judge Roseline Korir pronounced his release after being charged with murder of his colleague Esther Mukami at Container guest house in 2011.

Korir said evidence brought before the court showed shoddy investigations which could not link the accused person to the incidence.

Ogola however said his only mistake in the whole incidence was using a mobile phone he bought from his boss not knowing it belonged to the deceased who was also his colleague.
