The Council of Governors has maintained that county bosses will sack all nurses who have not resumed duty and advertise their positions.

The CoG has described the nurses’ strike as illegal and unprotected.

In a statement issued Sunday, CoG chairman Josphat Nanok said the Employment and Labour Relations Court, on September 1, declared the nurses’ strike illegal.

He asked officials of the Kenya National Union of Nurses (Knun) to call off the strike immediately and refrain from interfering with the smooth running of health care in Kenya.
