CS Kagwe is Warned Against Issuing Sacking Threats to Medics (Video)

The Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Mutahi Kagwe has been warned against issuing suck threats to medics. In a video shared by NTV two days ago, Kagwe warned medics of losing their jobs because of the ongoing strike. Kagwe's sentiments came in shortly after the Court issuing an order for health workers to report back to job.

In what has seemed as tit for tat, the CS Kagwe has consequently received stern warning from Kenya Union of Nurses. Led by the Secretary General, Seth Panyako, the union says nurse's strike is still on until their demands are met.

Speaking during the burial of Wycliffe Almasa in Kakamega County who succumbed to Covid-19, Panyako argues that nurses going back without PPE's is going to a slaughterhouse.

"There is no going back to work. If you've never seen war, you'll see this time round," he roared.

Seth's sentiments were as a result of striking workers, including nurses and clinical officers, lamenting that many of their colleagues are dying from COVID-19 due to a lack of both protective gear and health insurance.
