What you need to know:

  • The statement was issued following a CoG consultative meeting held in Nairobi on Friday to discuss strikes by the nurses and clinical officers.

  • “Our consultative meeting reiterated the resolution of the council meeting of August 31, 2017, that all nurses who have not returned to work stand sacked and thereafter, the counties advertise their positions,” said Mr Nanok.

  • The secretary-general dismissed the constant pronouncements by politicians and some governors  that the strike is illegal.

The Council of Governors has maintained that county bosses will sack all nurses who have not resumed duty and advertise their positions.
