KMPDC SG Chibanzi Mwachonda


The Mombasa county government lifts the original order that had sent home 86 doctors for failing to report to work.

This development comes after a fruitful dialogue between Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Council officials and those from the county.

A statement from KMPDC CEO Daniel Yumbya on Thursday said that the dialogue aims to assure that there is "immediate resolution of the ongoing matter to ensure that delivery of quality healthcare is not affected.

The two parties agreed that "Any doctor who will resume working immediately shall not be victimised nor face any disciplinary action."

It also stipulates that "Doctors who were affected have been asked to report to their various work station immediately."

"Any doctor who reports back to working now shall not be victimised nor face any disciplinary action. In this regard, we appeal to the affected doctors to report to work immediately, " Yumbya said.
