Nairobi - In news just in, Daily Nation reports that talks between the striking doctors and the government scheduled to resume on Thursday have been postponed to Friday in a sudden development that has left the Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) enraged.
The negotiations were set to restart KMPDU Secretary General Boniface Chitayi told journalists that they received a call from the Ministry this morning (Thursday) and that the meeting has been put off until tomorrow (Friday) with no reason offered at all though they anticipate they are consulting to come up with an acceptable offer.
In the new offer tabled Wednesday evening, the government increased the amount allocated to doctors’ allowances from Sh1.35 billion to Sh1.9 billion for the first phase and Sh5.2 billion for the second one.
