Street children in Kisii town prevented nurses from holding their demonstrations.

More than twenty street children, most armed with weapons such as wooden clubs and stones, obstructed the striking nurses at the Kisii-Kisumu Road on Monday.

The nurses were forced to seek security from the police officers at the Kisii Police Station.

The police however refused to help the medical attendants after they informed them they did not have adequate officers at the station.

The homeless children who did not give a reason for their actions, further warned the attendants to keep away from the town.

Strike puts lives at risk

This comes after the nurses through Kenya National Union of Nurses Secretary-General Seth Panyako, affirmed that they would continue with the strike.

The caregivers had on Saturday threatened to call for a nationwide strike to counter the oppression from the national and county governments.
