Soften your stand to end the strike, Ole Sapit appeal to doctors and government
  • Government maintains it will not negotiate with striking doctors
  • Cleric urge doctors and government to care about the plight of suffering Kenyans

Anglican Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit has urged both the government and doctors to soften their stand in order to end the medics strike.

Sapit said it is not about who is strong or weak but about the plights of suffering Kenyans who are dying

“I urge both the government and doctors to have the interest of dying Kenyans at heart and not engage in supremacy wars,” Sapit said.

State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu on Monday 13, 2017 in Mombasa maintained that there will be no more negotiations with doctors who are in illegal strike.

“We are in a place to attract doctors should we choose to advertise for the jobs because what we are offering to our doctors is three times than what other regions are offering

Secretary General of Kenya Medical Practitioners Dentist Union (KMPDU) Ouma Oluga called for sobriety among all the parties to end the strike.

“There should be another meeting between doctors and the religious leaders in order to iron out the remaining issues,” Oluga said.

Last week President Kenyatta ordered doctors to go back to work or else the government will ‘sort’ them out.

“Hawa watu wanafikiria sisi ni wajinga (These people think we are foolish),” said Mr Kenyatta while officially opening the fourth devolution conference in Naivasha.

“If this round of talks fails… we will sort them out,” he said, but did not elaborate what that “sorting” entailed. The move by the government later in the day to withdraw its initial offer and deregister the doctors’ union was seen by many as the President’s way of walking the talk.
