Women give birth on grass as nurses' strike looms

11 February 2016, 08:16 Mohammed Yusuf

Embu - Nurses in Embu County downed their tools following delayed promotions.

Patients especially expectant mothers were left clueless about the next move after they were left unattended. Some were even forced to deliver their newborns on the grass.

The Kenya National Union of Nurses vice chairperson, Ngwaci said the public service department has delayed their promotions. He led the strike by first closing the Union offices in Embu Level 5 hospital until the promotions reflect in their pay.

Newborns who were delivered at that time were left unattended and were discharged without any service. The mothers who were about to deliver were left to battle the journey alone, prompting them to help each other deliver.

The animosity exceeded when mothers who had to go through C-Section were left alone writhing in pain.

Nancy Wanjue narrates: "The nurses did not listen to me when I went on labour. My baby died as I tried to push him out. By the time they took me to the theater, the child had already died."
