Durban - A nurse was kidnapped on her way home from work at Stanger Hospital on Monday, apparently by striking public service workers, said the KwaZulu-Natal health department.

Spokesperson Chris Maxon said the nurse was one of the people hired by the department to help during the strike.

Her captors told her to phone the hospital to let it know what had happened to her, he said

"She has still not been found.

"The people who allegedly abducted her made her phone the hospital and told the hospital to release all the nurses working," said Maxon.

"The department is shocked to hear such news happening to people who are committed to providing health being victimised in this matter," he said, hoping the culprits would be found and placed behind bars.

The police were not immediately available for comment.
