Nurses in public hospitals in Nakuru downed their tools on Wednesday over the county’s failure to pay their July and August salaries.
They demonstrated outside Nakuru Level Five Hospital, led by Bernard Njoroge, who is Nakuru chairman of the Kenya National Union of Nurses (Knun).
The health workers said Nakuru dishonoured its promise to pay them on time following a series of meetings.
“We have decided to stay away from our working stations until the county honours its promise. Nurses have suffered for two months now,” said Mr Njoroge.
They also complained about the lack of promotions for 400 of them since January.
