Meru County to hire more nurses – Munya
Meru Governor Peter Munya has revealed plans to hire more nurses in a bid to improve the health sector.
Speaking at Antubochiu Primary School grounds in Igembe South on Saturday, Munya said that the national government had disbursed money to the county to provide smooth running of the county government, noting that the health workers’ issues are being addressed.
His statements come four days after health workers in the county downed their tools after failing to agree with the county government on promotions.
The strike has seen health centers and public hospitals deserted, with patients seeking treatment as far as the Isiolo County Referral Hospital.
The strike has also stalled services at Meru Level V Hospital, which is a key health center in the county.
At the same time, Governor Munya said that the long and tedious tendering process for county projects would be suspended, and money meant for development given to committee members to continue ongoing projects.
