UHURU is nobody to us and we will not resume work on Friday – Kenya Union of Nurses Secretary General, SETH PANYAKO, asserts

Wednesday February 13, 2019 - Kenya Union of Nurses Secretary General, Seth Panyako, has said nurses in the country will not return to work on Friday as ordered by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

On Wednesday, the Head of State ordered striking nurses to return to work by Friday 8.00 am or be sacked by the national Government and County Governments.

But addressing a press hours after Uhuru’s order, Panyako said nurses will continue to demand their rights and will not be intimidated by the Executive.

“I have no mandate to respond to the President.”

“If I do I will be overstepping my mandate.”

“I urge our members to remain firm and fight for their rights.”

“If there will be something otherwise, we will advise them accordingly,” Panyako said
He also said that he doesn’t fear arrest for fighting for nurses’ rights because he was elected to do that job.

"When I was arrested at Kenyatta National Hospital, was I throwing stones?”

“Whoever wants to arrest me can come to my house.”

“Many people have been arrested and disappeared and we are ready to take that route," he said.

He said more Counties will be joining the strike on Monday.
