Major changes for Kenyan doctors in Cuba after MP brother's suicide

This is what will be done

Health CS Sicily Kariuki during a past media briefing

Health CS Sicily Kariuki on Wednesday announced that doctors training in Cuba would have their salaries increased following the complaints issued by the medical practitioners.

The move by the government comes after the Kenya Medical practitioners and Dentist Union (KMPDU) had called for the cancellation of the program in the foreign country.

The CS stated that the medics would now earn Sh144,000 from the initial Sh50, 800.

The medical body had stated that the arrangement by the two nations had left the Kenyan medics in more problems than normal.

CS Kariuki however moved to assure the group of doctors that the government will keep a close eye to the situation in the South American country and address the issues that will emerge.

Kenyan doctor in Cuba allegedly commits suicide

The complaints were aggravated after a Kenyan doctor died under mysterious conditions a month ago.

Reports had indicated that the male doctor identified as Dr Hamisi Ali Juma, who is the brother to Likoni MP Mishi Mboko, had committed suicide due to the deplorable conditions being experienced in Cuba.

The exact cause of his death has remained unknown as the postmortem results are yet to be made public.
