Public Health PS Mark Bor yesterday said the ongoing strike by nurses is illegal. Speaking in Bomet after officially opening the Irwaga Model Health Hospital, Bor said it is a criminal offense for the nurses to go on strike and leave patients for the dead.
He said the Kenya National Union of Nurses Union, which called for the strike, is not a registered and has no authority to ask nurses to go on strike.
Bor was accompanied by Home Affairs assistant minister and Bomet MP Beatrice Kones. The hospital was build under the Economic Stimulus programme.
