Busia Governor, Sospeter Ojaamong, is warning clinical officers and nurses in the county against downing their tools.
Speaking when he presided over the signing of performance contracts by his executive, Ojaamong read the riot act to medics in the county intending to go on strike as the globe battles the pandemic.
He said those who will heed to calls by their unions to go on strike during the pandemic risk losing their jobs.
Ojaamong said those who will down their tools would be treated as cases of indiscipline and would be dealt with as individual cases, including terminating their contracts.
He further urged the department in charge of health to be firm even as he put lazy staff on notice, saying their days were numbered if they failed to meet their targets.
This comes just a day after doctors in Nairobi county under the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Union (KMPDU) issued a 7 day strike notice, citing poor quality of Personal Protective Equipment being delivered, resulting in medics contracting COVID-19.
