Kidero noted that he will not heed to President Uhuru Kenyatta's demands to pay the doctors.

According to the Nairobi boss paying the medical practitioners for the period they did not work, would be in violation of the law.

"Morally and contractually, you only get paid when you work and the people who worked will be paid. How do you get paid when you do not work?” Dr Kidero questioned.

Speaking during a meeting between ODM aspirants and the party’s election Board, he accused the National Government of interfering with the Integrated Financial Management and Information System (Ifmis) in order to stall salaries of county workers, which in turn causes hatred between the workers and the County Government.

“Why is the system always collapsing only during the time we are supposed to pay our workers? Right now we cannot even access the funds yet they are at the Central Bank,” the Governor highlighted.

Last week President Kenyatta directed the release of the three-month salary belonging to doctors’ who were on strike.

Speaking in Ndenderu, Kiambu County, Mr Kenyatta told the medics that they risk getting  fired in case they stage another industrial action.

“We are paying you but you cannot continue to endangering the lives of Kenyans. If they strike again, they will all go home. Not even a single doctor will go back to our hospitals because we already know what we will do,” Kenyatta said.
