Nurses rule out negotiation with government as strike kicks off
The Kenya National Union of Nurses secretary general Seth Panyako has ruled out any call for negotiation with the government.
Addressing the media in Eldoret, Panyako blamed Labour Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani for being reluctant to solve nurses’ grievances despite them tabling a strike notice in November 2018.
Panyako has called upon President Uhuru to fire non-performing Cabinet members including Ukur, saying that he has failed to address their issues.
“The strike has begun, the Labour CS has no mandate to stop workers’ strike,” Panyako said.
