Kisii Health Workers Issues A Strike Notice

Health workers in Kisii county have issued a notice for their strike, which will begin at midnight tonight.

This comes after the seven-day notice they gave on 14 September came to an end.

In a letter signed by the secretary of the Nyanza national nurses association Mr. Aggrey Orwenyo, the nurses said that the Kisii county government had not paid them their salaries in November and December.

The nurses said the delay in their salaries had negatively impacted them because they had failed to meet the needs of their families.

Their request is for the county government to address their demands to enable them to return to work so that patients do not miss out on health care.
