Social Activist, Lord Abraham Mutai has reacted to claims made by Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) that late Dr Stepehn Mogusu who died of COVID-19 complications did not receive his salary for 5 months, neither did he had insurance.
In a series of tweets, while reacting to the report by KMPDU, Lord Abraham Mutai described the information as false stating that Dr Mogusu was a NATIONAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE and was not on COUNTY payroll. He also said that Medics working under Machakos County are among the most well taken care of the country.

I don’t have patience with Kenyans. Facts are Sacred. Dr Mogusu was a NATIONAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE. It’s not the work of the Governor to monitor salaries of National Government EMPLOYEES just like he can’t go around asking whether police officers have been paid.
The death of Dr Mogusu has nothing to do with BBI. Doctors are dying of Covid19 all over the world. Ordinary citizens are ALSO dying of the same disease. We can’t now start lynching everyone just because one of the doctors is dead. No. It’s not RIGHT.
1. Dr Mogusu was a NATIONAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE and was not on COUNTY payroll
2. Machakos has paid all its doctors their salaries and allowances to date
3. Mutua was the first to ask for doctor’s to get a special covid allowance and proceeded to do so.
Do you have a relative working as a NURSE or a DOCTOR in Machakos COUNTY? Call them TODAY and ask their working conditions, salaries and allowances. Medics under Machakos County are among the most well taken care of in the Country. Credit where it’s due.
When you choose to be a doctor, you also choose every other danger thrown at you. Same way when you choose a career in the Army. Doctors want the country to stop just because #DrStephenMogusu died of Covid19. An exaggerated sense of entitlement can not be accepted. Do your Jobs!
National government says Dr Stephen Mogusu was FULLY paid. But the bloated ego of some doctor at KMPDU wants to incite us just so that we can join them in lynching everyone. Doctors are dying world over. What’s new about this one? It’s a PANDEMIC! It seems fools have taken over KMPDU.
