The Muslim Community in Migori County have called upon the government to intervene to end the strike by doctor’s and clinical officers in the Country.

Speaking on Wednesday after celebrating Eid Ul-Fitr in Migori town, the Migori Muslim Development Community Forum Chairperson Omar Ibrahim said that the county residents have been subjected to a lot of pain because of lack of medical services across the public country hospitals.

Omar urged the doctors to reconsider their position and agree to return to their workstations as the Kenya medical practitioners pharmacists and dentists union officials continue to hold negotiations with the government.

“Our country residents are suffering because they cannot afford to take their sick relatives and loved ones to private hospitals,” lamented Omar.

The official also urged the political class in the county to desist from early campaigns and instead focus on the developmental agenda of the region.

He said that when the county is subjected to early campaigns it may delay the developmental agenda that needs to grow and compete to attract both local, regional and foreign investors.

Omar, however, called upon the county residents to join hands and make Migori a peaceful county for harmonised integration among the many tribes living within this country’s borders.
