Court Grants Doctors Seven More Days To Continue With Talks


The Court of Appeal has granted the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights and Law Society of Kenya seven more days to bring the 81-day doctors’ strike to an end.

The mediators through lawyers James Orengo and Orao Obura reported that progress had been made on a number of issues but asked for the seven days to resolve what remains contentious.

The Council of Governors argued that days were sufficient, while the National Government was of the opinion that three days were sufficient and if no resolution was reached at that stage, the matter should be decided by the courts.

The Court of Appeal judges while noting that the issue before them was literally life or death, granted the mediators’ prayer for seven more days but with the provision that they were free to return to court with a progress report sooner.
