SPAN calls all Ugandans to join the doctors strike
TIME TO JOIN THE STRIKING DOCTORS NOW.
The time is now for other civil servants to join doctors who are on strike.
From a credible source inside the regime, Museveni is already talking of the government to meet doctors demands as he is afraid of the consequences of the strike.
Other top generals have told Museveni not to give in easily as it would send the wrong message specifically to the teachers who have been promised the pay raise for quite sometime.
Prime Minister Rugunda wants Parliament to pass the age limit amendments as quickly as possible as numerous people are now demanding money from the government in order to support the amendments.
Rugunda said that at the moment the government cannot afford to meet doctors’ demands while the government is engaged in constitutional amendments.
Museveni was dumbfounded when he heard that doctors had gone through with the strike after the government issued a threatening order requesting all medical doctors to return to work.
News of Uganda doctors on strike has already reach Nairobi and Kigali and these two countries are more than willing to pay those doctors who would seek employment in these countries should Uganda government carry out its threat of firing the doctors.
State house Entebbe is in touch with Kenyan ministry of health trying to convince the government not to hire Ugandan doctors as this would cause more doctors to go on strikes.
Many hospitals are not fully staffed due to the strike and according the prime ministers office, other healthcare employees such as Nurses, Technicians may join the strike.
Perhaps this strike can bring some needed common sense to the teachers and the police to also demand a pay increase.
The government took $3.4M from the NSSF retirement account to pay members of parliament each 29M/= which has created problems for the government. The government cannot tell doctors that, there is no money while the government found $3.4M in just a matter of weeks.
DON’T LET THE SMARTPHONE BE SMARTER THAN YOU.
STOP THE MADNESS.
