Kenyan Nurses Threaten Strike Over Increased License Renewal Fees by katty : October 13, 2018, 01:06:54 PM
Crisis is looming in the health sector after the Kenyan nurses association differed with the regulator over allegedly raising annual deductible retention fee up to Ksh.6,000 from Ksh.1,000.

National Nurses Association of Kenya (NNAK) claims that the fee was hiked without any consultations.



They are now threatening a nationwide strike and are demanding the removal of the Kenya Nursing Council (KNC) Board should the new fee remain unamended.

They are now threatening a nationwide strike and are demanding the removal of the Kenya Nursing Council (KNC) Board should the new fee remain unamended.

Speaking in Machakos during the 60th annual scientific conference, NNAK Chairman Alfred Obengo blamed the nursing council of Kenya for tailoring Bills that are not friendly to the members.

“We are giving the government an ultimatum to work on this issue reduce the retention fee or we go on streets on 7th of November,” he said.

He added that they will petition the Cabinet Secretary of Health for what they term as autocratic leadership of their regulator.

The official further castigated the council for failing to consult stakeholders in decision making, a move he termed as oppressing and offensive to the nurses.

His sentiments were echoed by his vice chair Moses Chirchir who said the terms originated from an individual.
