In Nyeri, Duncan Mathenge, the KHPS area chairman said it was unfortunate that even after signing an agreement, the Government went ahead and declined to honour it in full.
"The Government pledged to pay the first phase of the allowances amounting to Sh15,000 in December 2010 and a similar amount in July last year, but it is astonishing that there were a lot of discrepancies," said Mathenge.
He added: "The allowances were not uniform as agreed and in some cases, nurses got Sh10,000, with others Sh7,500 and Sh3,500."
Nurses Association National Treasurer Jeremiah Maina said the agreement halted a planned strike called by nurses, but the disparities in payments have divided the health fraternity.
"We have already petitioned the Government and if the payments are not effected in this monthâs pay, the health workers will not report to work on March 1," said Maina.
In Kakamega, Thaddeus Mayaka, the national chairman of Kenya Progressive Nurses Association (KPNA), said they presented the first circular to the Government last December with all their grievances well outlined.
Addressing health workers at Kakamega Provincial General Hospital, Mr Mayaka said they have since sensed mischief on the side of the Government.
In Nakuru, a statement read on their behalf by Gladwel Cheruiyot said the workersâ welfare union resorted to a strike call after the Government failed to take any action within the 100 days agreed on to fast track their payments under the rapid result initiative.
Addressing the media at Rift Valley Provincial General Hospital, the officials said the circular from the Ministry of State for Public Service in December last year failed to include all the allowances but reflected what was agreed in the meeting.
In Eldoret, union chairman Antony Mamati accused the Government of dragging its feet.
He pointed out that some nurses have not gone on leave for the last three years because of understaffing.
