Another issue discussed in the joint statement by Health Cabinet Secretary, Sicily Kariuki, and Council of Governor’s chair Wycliffe Oparanya was disciplinary measures.

The officials also discussed that disciplinary proceedings would be instituted on nurses who failed to report to work on February 15, 2019, as ordered by President Uhuru.

Uhuru asked nurses to go back to work or else they would be fired but some defied the order.
