Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) boss Seth Panyako was on Monday October 29 a******d for marshaling nurses at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) to participate in a protest.
Panyako was taken into custody following a report by the hospital’s security team to the police.
“It doesn’t make any sense for Panyako to come here and invite nurses to a strike because he is not allowed to do that and in any case he is an outsider who does not work here.” said Manase Mukhwana the hospital’s head of security.
A number of the nurses who participated in the protest were also a******d and d******d at the police post inside the referral hospital.
The a****t of the union leader comes one week after a n***e was strangled by a mother whose son d**d at the hospital on October 13, 2018.
Panyako’s call for a strike was catalysesd by concerns by the nurses who are questioning their safety at the facility following the a*****t of their colleague on October 14, 2018.
Claims are also emerging from the hospital that the assaulted n***e was asked to pay for her treatment despite being attacked while she was discharging her duties at the hospital.
