08 December 2011, 08:59
Nairobi - According to Capital News, the government will have to go back to the drawing board after the Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union(KMPDU) on Wednesday evening rejected a new pay offer presented to them.
In yet another round of negotiations, as strike entered its third day, the government made a new proposal to allocate Sh7.1billion for extraneous allowance to all health workers in two quarters as opposed to the three annual phases it had proposed earlier.
Addressing the government officials at the negotiations, open to the media, KPMPDU's chairman, Victor Ng'ani said that, “Today, what you have given… we don’t have a breakdown and we would rather you give us one so that we can see how much has been offered to the doctors rather than mention huge figures that could add up to nothing.”
