Kenyan Nurses Strike: Moi Referral Hospital is Now Recruiting New Nurses by Peculiar005 : July 15, 2017, 09:14:52 PM
The Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret is seeking to hire more nurses as the ongoing nurses' strike continues to bite.

CEO of the hospital Dr Wilson Aruasa has advertised 70 vacancies to fill up slots in Job group M9.

Successful candidates will be paid about Sh47,000.

Applications will close on July 26.

"The successful candidates will be entitled to applicable allowances in the job group M9," said Dr Aruasa.

The move comes as more than 800 nurses at the hospital remain out of work.

They have been out of work for the last 50 days demanding the implementation of their collective bargaining agreement.

The CBA to gives them better pay and allowances.

Chairman of the nurses union at the hospital Kennedy Orangi said they have no problem with the hospital hiring more nurses but the CBA demand still stands.

"We need more nurses to help improve services and they too will benefit from the CBA we are demanding", Orangi said.

Orangi said President Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto should stop focusing on their reelection campaigns and intervene to help end the strike.

"Patients have suffered for too long and it's time the government takes us seriously because we will not resume work without the CBA.

The nurses union is accusing the Salaries and Remuneration Commission of delaying the implementation of the CBA.
