Patients’ suffering deepens even after court sets free jailed doctors
Kenyans on Twitter on Wednesday expressed fear after private hospital doctors downed their tools in solidarity with their striking colleagues from the public hospitals.
Nairobi Hospital, Mater Hospital and Gertrude’s Hospital were some of the private hospitals that had issued a notice, to close business for 48 hours in protest against the jailing of doctors’ union official.
However, on Wednesday the court of appeal ordered the immediate release of the doctor’s officials for resumption of negotiations on a return to work formula.
It is yet to be established if the doctors in the private sector have resumed work after the release of their colleagues in the public sector.
