Healthcare services in Trans Nzoia County are set for partial paralysis come the 4th of February this year with nurses vowing down their tools after issuing a strike notice to the County Government.

Led by Sifuna and the Kenya National Union of Nurses Trans Nzoia Branch chair Edward Cheruiyot, the nurses cited  lack of enough drugs and non-pharmaceuticals in hospitals, implementation of a return to work formula, punitive transfers and unnecessary harassment as some of the reasons that have forced them to take the industrial action.
