Kenyan doctors suspended over strike.

Six doctors from the Kenyan doctors' union have been given a one-month suspended sentence for refusing to call off the on-going strike which paralysed medical operations in public hospitals, since last year.

Ceoafrica gathered that the Employment and Labour Relations Court ordered the union to end the strike and finalise negotiations with the government led by President Uhuru Kenyatta within the next two weeks.

Several attempts to end the strike have failed as the doctors want the full implementation of a deal signed in 2013 to improve the doctors' pay and working conditions, in which Judge Hellen Wasilwa warned that if the officials did not heed to the order, they would be jailed for two weeks.
