KDF Doctors Deployed At KNH To avert Crisis
The government has deployed Kenya Defence Forces doctors to Kenyatta National Hospital to handle emergency cases after 290 specialists joined the ongoing health workers’ strike on yesterday.
The KDF doctors reportedly checked in at the hospital at around midday today and have been making rounds to various departments.
Earlier today President Uhuru Kenyatta had expressed hope that a solution to end the doctors strike will be found before the end of the day.
Meanwhile the doctors’ oversight body KMPDB has warned the doctors against disrupting operations in private and mission hospitals saying that anyone culpable will face disciplinary action.
