The National Education, Health, and Allied Workers’ Union has vowed to intensify its strike by public healthcare workers this week.

The strike has been characterised by intimidation and assault of healthcare workers … and some patients being turned away from hospitals.

Nehawu’s Mike Shingange, says more institutions delivering public health services will be affected this week, as more members join in the strike.

Public service workers are demanding a 10% wage increase, while the government is offering 4.7 %.

Shingange has accused the government of being arrogant during negotiations.
