What you need to know:

  • The advertisement also singled out six counties: Bomet, Nandi, Tharaka Nithi, Uasin Gishu, Kitui and Nairobi, where they claimed nurses had not participated in the ongoing nationwide strike.
  • However, nurses, who have been out of work for the last 119 days, quickly opposed the statement, accusing the county bosses of lying to the public.
  • Ms Munderu added that contrary to what governors said, all Nairobi nurses were on strike and not at work, and shared pictures of locked sub-county hospital gates.

A group of nurses Sunday disputed claims by governors that a good number of them were at work.
