PRESS STATEMENT: Doctor’s Strike


docstrikeWe are calling for the Cabinet Secretary of Health, Dr. Cleopa Mailu to resign for failing to mitigate the health crisis following the industrial action by doctors pushing for the implementation of the CBA that they signed with the government of Kenya.

We are calling for the immediate release of the Doctor’s Union representatives who have been jailed for one month for participating in industrial action. The jail sentence only adds insult to injury, and makes mediation between the government and the doctors very difficult. We are also asking for the government of Kenya to resume talks with the Doctors as soon as possible and end the strike so that Kenyans continue receiving health services.

We would like to take issue with the manner in which the night vigil organized by the doctors was declared illegal by the police against the Constitution of Kenya. Freedom of Association is guaranteed under the Kenyan Constitution.
