Over 100 nurses held peaceful demonstrations around Runyenjes Town yesterday in support of the ongoing nation-wide nurses strike.
Kenya National Union of Nurses vice chair Joseph Nzai said government should listen to their demands, register the union and move nurses on contract to permanent employment status.
He said that government had started giving allowances to nurses who were on contract and after six months withdrew it without notice.
He said government should also honor the agreement to pay call allowances, theatre allowances and uniform allowances amounting to Sh50,000 annually.
He said a director of nursing services should be appointed.
