What you need to know:

  • The Kirinyaga county government, in a notice in the local dailies, said the positions to be filled competitively will be on renewable contracts.

  • Last week, Kiambu County Public Service Board announced plans to fill the vacancies left by the striking nurses. 

County governments have begun advertising positions for the nurses who are on strike even as the caregivers continued their push for better pay and promotions.
