Nurses union asks medics on strike to resume duty
The Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) has asked the nurses on strike to resume work and give more time to the government to settle and find a lasting solution to their issues.
Speaking in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County, KNUN national chairman, John Bii, accused Secretary General, Seth Panyako, of what he claimed that he duped nurses that a deal had been reached on a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).
“We want to thank those who have already gone back to continue offering services to Kenyans, those remaining please allow the newly elected governors including the new Jubilee government to put its house in order,” said Bii
“As I speak today, there is no CBA, and I want to challenge him (Panyako), if he has the CBA, let him come out today and say here is the CBA.”
Mr. Bii added that nurses should allow the county governments and the national government to put their house in order so as to sort out the long lasting problem.
