Two dead in Nakuru as nurses strike continues

13 August 2015, 22:13 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - At least two people have died at the Rift Valley General Hospital as the health workers strike entered day four.

This is contrary to previous claims that at least six people might have succumbed to death as a result of the strike which started on Monday.

However, Nakuru deputy Governor Joseph Ruto rebuffed the claims and stated that only two children have died but not as a result of the strike.

Speaking Thursday morning at his office, Ruto dismissed reports that six people have died at the hospital as untrue.

“The reports could be propaganda being funded by the nurses at the hospital to portray the County government in bad faith,” said Ruto.

The health workers strike has paralysed activities at the hospital and other major hospitals in the County since Monday, with most patients resorting to seeking treatment in private hospitals.

The more than 2 400 health workers downed their tools on Monday demanding that their allowances and promotions be addressed.

The County government’s intervention to salvage the situation has not borne any fruit after talks with the health workers collapsed on Tuesday.

“We have tried our best as the County government to talk to the nurses but we have failed and the case has been forwarded to the labour ministry,” said Ruto.

The matter has since been referred to the labour department.
