“I want to thank the governor for his commitment in the health sector by ensuring that our hospitals and dispensaries have all the necessary medicine and drugs for treatment in an effort to ensure that people in our county stay healthy. I am equally requesting him to consider paying casual workers who work in these health facilities during the supplementary budget in the coming days to motivate them in their tireless efforts of ensuring that services at out health facilities are seamless,” he said.
