CORD Lawyers To Take Up Doctors’ Case

Doctors Jailed

CORD leader Raila Odinga said the coalition has instructed its lawyers to take up doctors’ case against the government after Court on Monday jailed union officials for refusal to call off strike.

Through Raila Odinga, Cord blamed government for failure to resolve the strike which has affected many patients across the country.

CORD accused the government of taking advantage of the suspended sentence to blackmail the doctors.

“Rather than resolve the crisis in the health sector, the jailing of union officials deepens it and sets an extremely dangerous precedent. It marks out the government as a dishonest and unreliable employer whose word, even in writing count for nothing,” said Raila.
