Kenya: Govt to Meet Nurses This Week

Nurses are expected to hold talks with the government this week in a bid to end the four week strike that has paralyzed hospital services countrywide. The nurses however still insist they will not call off their strike until they have a union. On Friday the industrial court declared that the nurses have a right to form a union and also join a strike without victimization. Seth Panyako is from the nurses' union.
