(+) POLITI­CIANS AC­CUSED OF IN­CIT­ING STRIKES

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

The fre­quent nurses’ strikes in Tharaka Nithi are po­lit­i­cally in­sti­gated by some lead­ers, Deputy Gover­nor Eliud Mu­rithi has said. He said some prom­i­nent lead­ers in­cite med­i­cal work­ers to go on strike to paint the county in a bad light. “How can nurses go on strike de­mand­ing their pre­vi­ous month’s salary on 5th and yet all other work­ers, in­clud­ing the gover­nor, have not been paid,” Mu­rithi said. “There is a ploy by some lead­ers who use KNUN of­fi­cials to sab­o­tage the county gov­ern­ment.”
