Pumwani Maternity Hospital nurses’ strike called off

27 March 2015, 10:42

Nairobi - Nurses at Pumwani Maternity Hospital reported back to work on Friday, after calling off their two-day strike.

The nurses downed tools on Wednesday over allegations of baby theft at the hospital.

They had vowed not to return to work, and wanted to be transferred from the hospital, saying the baby theft allegations had tarnished the hospital's reputation, Daily Nation reported.

They however decided to return to work after meeting with the officials from Nairobi County government.

According to Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero, none of the nurses will be victimized over the strike.

According to the mother of the twins, Jacinta Wanjiku Gathua, she gave birth to two babies but she was told by doctors that the babies died 12 hours before delivery.

DNA tests showed that the two bodies presented as twins by the hospital were not related, neither did they relate with the mother, nor her husband.
