Mulago Nurses Lay Down Tools

medicine geneva;”>The nurses, who laid their tools on Tuesday morning, say they have not had electricity since last year “and authorities have not done anything to help the situation.”

One of the nurses told Chimpreports they chose to rise up in arms after the administration decided to shut their eyes and ears to their plight.

“Every time this issue comes up the administration reassures us that something will be done but up to now they have not intervened.”

The nurses today morning stormed the Hospital premises, holding placards with messages demanding electricity.

According to Mulago Hospital Police boss, Richard Okello, the situation “is under control since the protesters have been dispersed.”

He denied reports that some nurses had been arrested. But some nurses were seen in running battles with the police.

The strike has paralyzed business at the national referral hospital.

This is not the first time for Mulago nurses are laying down their tools.

Last year, intern doctors and nurses went on strike over delayed salary payment for the month of November 2012.

Several patients were left unattended to in the hospital.
