Reprieve for admited patients after 79 days of suffering during the nurses strike.
The nurses’ strike has now been called off following a court order issued by the Labour Court.
Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) Secretary General Seth Panyako, in a press address on Wednesday, directed all members to report back to work immediately.
“The strike which commenced on December 7, 2020 is hereby called off, all members to report to work and attend to patients immediately not later than tomorrow,” said Panyako.
Panyako further stated the union will still continue pursuing their demands even as they report back to work.
“The eviction of nurses done in some counties were against the law…KNUN will ensure they recover what they lost. No single nurse died of COVID-19 when we were on strike,” he said.
Kenya Union of Clinical Officers (KUCO) Chairman Peterson Wachira on Tuesday also urged members to report back to work after 70 days following the court order.
