Good info.

What is the source of the statistics?

What they didnt tell you is that 40% of these guys are unemployed. While the already employed are struggling with very poor pays. Can you imagine paying a nurse 30k. Forcing him/her to live in a slam. Sad state of affairs

(51420 - 5000) nurses = 46420

Kenyas population = 53 mil

Let’s be very generous and add a factor of 10 to 46420 because this was way back in 2018

lets say we currently have 464,200

46,4200 remaining nurses ÷
( population)=0.009 nurses for every Kenyan patient!!

Let that sink in before you realise how 8-4-4 made us all akili maji.

The current regime decided to outsource 5000 of our highly trained nurses amid SARS-Covid-19!!
Do Kenyans realise this is a death sentence???
