www.ntv.co.ke The Kenya Medical Association has issued a strike notice by all doctors serving in universities and government parastatals. Speaking at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret KMA Chair Dr. Paul Nyongesa says the doctors have withdrawn their services owing to what they allege is discrimination from the government. They claim they have not received their allowances, and requests to the government to paythe doctors have borne little fruit. The doctors say that they will not return to work until their grievances are met. The strike notice could seriously affect operations at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, especially in the wake of a recent go-slow by the nursing staff employed there. KMA however says it regrets that the industrial action will hurt the health sector, but claims that it has been left with no other option but to stay away from work.
