City Hall: Council workers have downed their tools over pay.

Operations at the Mombasa city council have been grounded for a second week after over 2000 workers downed their tools over salary delays.

They claim that the ministry for local government has not reviewed their 60 and 30 percent salary increment as per the signed collective bargaining agreement.

The move comes days after local government minister Paul Otuoma dissolved councils to pave way for March 4th elections.
