Junior doctors at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi in the Ashanti region are embarking on strike over unpaid salaries.In a statement released on Monday, the doctors said government has turned deaf ears to their concerns. The junior doctors are demanding the payment of their salary arrears for the past nine months.“It has become very necessary for us to take such drastic decision basically because we strongly believe that the government has not given us the due treatment with reference to our letter which we sent to the minister of health on May 16 and all the stakeholders involved in our salary processing and payment including, the office of the President…We are therefore telling government that until our full nine months salaries have been paid, we are not coming to work”, the statement noted.
