Senator Boni Khalwale of Kakamega has made a plea to President William Ruto to give him an invitation to the State House so that they may discuss the current strike by medicine professionals. 


In a statement that was released on Monday, Khalwale mentioned three other individuals who would be participating in the discussion with him, noting their prior expertise in the medical field. 


As far as Khalwale is concerned, the current strike by medical professionals is a tragedy waiting to happen, and it is imperative that issues be resolved as soon as possible.

The member of parliament for Seme, Dr. James Nyikal, who had previously served as the director of medical services, was presented by Khalwale as a candidate who should be present at that meeting. Khalwale referred to Nyikal as one of the most outstanding medical minds in Kenya.


One of Khalwale's observations was that "he was my lecturer at the University of Nairobi." 


In addition, the legislator presented Robert Pukose, a member of parliament for the Endebess Constituency and a former medical superintendent, as well as Dr. Patrick Amoth, the director general of the Health Department, as individuals who are capable of coming up with amazing ideas on the most effective method to address the strike. 


The statement that he made was, "I am convinced that if State House invites us for a discussion of ideas along with our combined medico-political experience, we will in perfect good faith enlighten the way forward." 


As the health system continues to be paralysed, Kenyans who live near the border have chosen to seek medical care from hospitals located in Tanzania and Uganda, which are bordering nations.


In March, a report was made public that said that the number of Kenyans who were accepted to Rombo and Longido, both of which are located in Tanzania, had increased by a substantial percentage. 


Francis Atwoli, the head of the Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU), has pledged to launch a strategy to put an end to the prolonged strike that has been going on across the country. 


In his statement, Atwoli said, "We are unable to make a decision for the government or for doctors; however, we are able to narrow the gap on issues and obtain a Return to Work Formula."


The protracted strike by medical professionals has resulted in significant financial losses for both parties. The absence of medical personnel in hospitals around the nation has been cited as the cause of several fatalities that have been recorded. 


As a consequence of this, Governor Mutahi Kahiga of Nyeri County issued a decree on Monday banning the payment of salaries to striking medical professionals working inside his county.
