Efforts to resolve the doctors’ strike seem to be going down the drain with both sides expressing anger and frustration.
KMPDU secretary general Ouma Oluga has criticized the government for creating hurdles just as they near solutions to the stalemate that is on its 96th day.
He said this after the government cancelled a Sh14.5 billion offer it earlier made doctors to end their strike.
Oluga said they will overcome the hurdles that the government has created as the success of their union depends on the resolve and unity they have exhibited.
Doctors have been on strike since December last year, demanding a 300 per cent increase of their salaries and allowances in what economists say, is totally unsustainable due to the country’s economic status and may touch off a storm from other public servants.
