Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale has asked Governor Wycliffe Oparanya to act with speed and end a strike by nurses.

The week-long strike by nurses has paralysed health care in county hospitals.

Dr Khalwale said the governor should stop playing politics with the lives of residents and instead take charge of the issue to avert the suffering of patients.

The Senator added that the national government had issued enough money to run health services and that Mr Oparanya had no excuse.

“Mr Oparanya should stop intimidating nurses and instead address the impasse before it claims more lives. It is normal for employees to ask for promotions and better working conditions,” he said in Kakamega Town.

The over 1,300 nurses are protesting against delayed promotions, poor working conditions and better pay, according to union officials.
