A NURSING sister was arrested at Town Hill Psychiatric Hospital for intimidation yesterday.

A caller, who prefered to remain anonymous, told The Witness that the nurse (47) was arrested after she allegedly insulted staff reporting for work and banged on their vehicles.

A group of protesters had gathered near the hospital entrance when the nurse, whose identity has been withheld, allegedly banged on the vehicles making their way into the hospital premises yesterday morning.

“The nurse … said that we are sell-outs who will land ourselves in a sticky situation if we continued working during the strike.”

KZN police spokesperson Colonel Jay Naicker confirmed the arrest.
