Nairobi - More than 500 Nairobi County Government employees have been suspended for allegedly participating in an illegal strike.
According to Interim County Secretary Lillian Ndegwa, the workers were suspended together with Kenya County Government Workers Union officials after defying a court order that required them to return to work, The Standard reports.
Police used teargas canisters on Tuesday to disperse the workers who were protesting in the streets of Nairobi and littering the city with garbage.
