A year ago, in April 2018, the Kenyan Government signed an agreement with the government of Cuba for an exchange programme that will see a select Kenyan doctors receive specialised training, which will be mostly be on family medicine.
Fifty (50) doctors were the first to be airlifted for the programme.
Yesterday, the Ministry of Health led by the corrupt and greedy bully Cabinet Secretary (CS) Sicily Kariuki announced that a Kenyan doctor in that programme had committed suicide.
Dr. Hamisi Ali Juma, complained of harsh living conditions and wanted out.
The Ministry ignored his and others plea of support. The doctors shared that the government neglected them, even as the payment for upkeep they were supposed to receive was reduced by over 75 percent. This is on top of delayed disbursement of those funds.
The Kenya Medical Practitioners Pharmacists And Dentists’ Union (KMPDU), through their Secretary general Dr. Ouma Oluga, has called on the government to terminate the programme.
