Speaking in Kakamega, the union’s national secretary general Seth Panyako and his vice Maurice Opetu have blamed SRC for being reluctant to increase the nurses wages despite both the national and County governments’ willingness to do so.
The KNUN secretary general Seth Panyako and his vice Maurice Opetu have called upon the CS to act with speed and disband the board which they claim has for a long time denied justice to those who contribute through it.
Panyako says that the fund has for along time been operating outside the law stealing from contributors who end up suffering when need arises.
He termed the idea of capitation as an illegal way of stealing from the contributors, adding that the board should ensure that contributor’s get funded for the services they seek at the hospital and not allocating a meager amount to contributors on a yearly basis and call it capitation.
He says that the union supports the government’s initiative in the fight against corruption in the board calling upon the minister in charge to disband it with immediate effect.
