Tuesday, December 8, 2020 – Machakos Governor, Dr. Alfred Mutua, is reportedly paying bloggers and social media influencers to vilify Dr. Stephen Mogusu, who died on Monday after a short battle with Covid-19.
Before his death, Dr. Mogusu had not received his salary for five months, opening a can of worms of how national and county governments have neglected health workers despite allocating billions in fighting the COVID -19 pandemic.
Following the death of Dr. Mogusu, Mutua went on Twitter and shared a payslip of the deceased, disputing the claims that the respected doctor in Machakos County had not been paid for 5 months.
However, in the slip, Mutua failed to understand that Kenyans are no longer fools as he may think since they know the meaning of the word “arrears”.
Arrears is a financial and legal term that refers to the status of payments in relation to their due dates.
In short, Dr. Mogusu was paid in November probably when he was in a hospital bed and the money was an accumulation of 5 months’ salary meaning the last time he was paid was in April 2020.
Here is Mogusu’s payslip showing he was not paid for 5 months.
