Striking Doctors Summoned In Court
Employment and Labour Relations court has directed KMPDU officials to appear in court next Tuesday to show cause why they should not be committed to civil jail for disobeying court orders.
Judge Hellen Wasilwa also directed Kiilimani OCS to assist in serving the officials with the orders.
The directions were issued after the council of governors moved to court and filed a case against the doctors’ union and its officials.
In a certificate of urgency, the council of governors argued thet the medical practioners have proceeded to go on unlawful and unprotected strike thereby gravely affecting the health and wellbeing of patients.
