Kenyan nurses have threatened to resume their strike in February if the government will not have paid them service allowance.

This was announced by the Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) secretary general Seth Panyako, during a swearing in ceremony of new National Nurses Association of Kenya officials last Friday.

” I am hearing that it might not be paid; let anybody try and if we go out from February 1, we shall not come back until that CBA is completely negotiated signed and registered by the court,” said Panyako.

The nursing service allowance agreed between the government and the nurses stipulated that nurses will get between Sh.15,000 and Sh.20,000.
