In Summary
  • Knun deputy secretary-general Maurice Opetu accused the government of not being keen on resolving the issue.
  • Opetu said representatives of national and county governments did not attend a meeting focused on ending the strike.

Nurses have vowed to continue with their strike until the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) they signed with the Council of Governors is honoured.

The nurses have been on strike since June 5 after the Council failed to register in court a CBA they signed on May 26.


Kenya National Union of Nurses (Knun) secretary-general Seth Panyako on Saturday said the industrial action has not been put off and that no amount of intimidation would make them falter on their demands.

"We would like to tell our members that the strike is still on course and nothing has changed so far.

"All our members should continue until we get to an agreement with the Council of Governors," Mr Panyako said.

Mr Panyako blasted the governors for not 'showing any interest' in ending the stalemate.

"High government officials at county level have the key to unlock this stalemate and for them to sit back and say that they are not going to have the issue resolved is making us doubt where we are headed as a nation," he said.
