NURSES STRIKE: Police deploys at Nurse's Union offices, as Nurses attack officials
Earlier on this week on Tuesday, the nurses tasked their president, Justus Cherop Kiplangat, to explain why he called off the industrial action before consulting them.

Police deployed scores at the headquarters of the Uganda Nurses and Midwives Union in Mulago to avert any anarchy that could arise out of a second stormy meeting between the nurses and their union representatives.

 

The nurses and midwives stormed the union headquarters in Mulago to seek answers from their union officials over their remuneration.

 

Earlier on this week on Tuesday, the nurses tasked their president, Justus Cherop Kiplangat, to explain why he called off the industrial action before consulting them.

In defence, Cherop told the nurses that government had committed to honouring their demands for improved pay and working conditions.

He also promised to get a scheme of service from the public service ministry which by this morning had not been shared

 

The health workers declined to endorse the document he presented purportedly from the government whose veracity was questioned.

They followed him to his office to give a clear explanation of what next.

The leaders want their subordinates to wait until Saturday to get a response from the government by Saturday.

However, nurses and midwives are accusing the government of paying lip service to their plight.
