Health CS Cleopa Mailu, Council of Governors and Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) officials have been summoned to appear before Senate health committee in a bid to resolve the ongoing doctors’ strike.

The doctors’ outcry has been the government’s failure to implement the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) that will address their issues.

Kenya Medical Practitioners Pharamasists and Dentists union (KMPDU) Members Daisy Koris (National treasurer), Oluga Ouma (Secretary General) and Oroko Samuel (National Chairman) accompanied by Union Members adress the press

Doctors had earlier accused the Government of taking advantage of their impending jail sentences to frustrate talks to end the strike.

The parties are set to appear before the senate on Tuesday next week.
