Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) has called on President Kenyatta to intervene to end the strike that has seen healthcare services collapse for over a month.
According to the Nurses’ Union Secretary-General Seth Panyako, the standoff between the two levels of government and the Unions has led to a paralysis of critical healthcare services in public facilities.
“We have noted differences between the two levels of government. We request President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene. Health care is on the verge of collapsing. The negotiations are over. We ask our members to stay put on the strike,” he said.
While addressing the media Friday, Panyako denied claims by the Council of Governors that counties had no monies to fund their return to work formula.
