Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua has bashed Kirinyaga leaders for the worsening situation at the county health sector, blaming their indifference for the deterioration.
Speaking at the Kiamwathi Anglican Church on Saturday, the former Gichugu parliamentary expressed her worries, with area leaders appearing reluctant to save the situation.
She said that the political group has been a let down to locals, following their inability to intervene, at a time when medical staff throughout the county have downed their tools.
"The leaders have failed the residents who voted for them in the last elections, residents should be careful when electing the leaders," she was quoted by the Nation.
Medical staff in the county have been on strike for three weeks, which has in turn forced residents to seek medication in the neighbouring Embu County.
They have blamed area governor and Karua's main rival Anne Waiguru of failing to meet their demands, and are also against the pathetic conditions of area hospitals.
The group is also demanding for promotions and a sack of the 346 casual workers who they say are ballooning the wage bill.
In response, the county has since began hiring new medical staff on a two month contract.
Karua now wants leaders to exit from office, saying that they are of nonuse to the electorate that out them in power.
"If you are an elected leader you should work hard for the people but not to idle around doing nothing," she added.
