Kenya: Nurses to Serve Govt With Orders Barring Their Sacking

Nurses are expected to serve the government with court orders barring their sacking today as their strike enters its fourth week.

The nurses union secretary general Seth Panyako said the union will be holding talks with government representatives on Wednesday in accordance with the court order issued on Friday in an attempt to solve the current impasse.

The nurses body obtained a court order on Friday from the industrial courts that allowed them to continue with their civil action on grounds of them being within their rights to strike.

The court injunction issued by judge Njagi Marete further allowed the nurses to form their union to present their grievances to the government on their behalf without fear of victimisation.
