Nasa: We are not behind the doctors’ strike

National Super Alliance (Nasa) co-principal Musalia Mudavadi has denied claims that the opposition outfit is funding the doctors’ strike.

“We are not supporting the strike, that is false and who ever is saying that is only misleading Kenyans,” Mudavadi said.

He also refuted claims that the opposition is riding on the doctors’ strike to gain popularity.

“Nasa is raising legitimate concerns that the government should address this issue. No one is dancing on anyone’s graves,” he added.

RENEGING ON CBAs

He, however, accused the government of reneging on collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) citing the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) as an example of a workers’ union which has been similarly frustrated in the past.

Mr Mudavadi, who is also the Amani National Congress Party leader, made the remarks when he met women aspirants at his party headquarter in Lavington.

He said his party will conduct primaries that will ensure the one third gender rule to increase women representation in politics.

“We want to reaffirm our commitment to see more women in politics and we want to promise that the party primaries will give women a chance,” he said.
