About half of the 61 medical doctors sacked by Laikipia County Government last month have reported back to work.

Health CEC Dr Lenai Kamario said the medics resumed duty after responding to “show-cause” letters issued to them before dismissal.

 On May 24, through the Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union, the medics issued a strike notice to the county government.

 The notice by KMPDU secretary general Ouma Oluga accused the county government of failing to respond to issues of designation of specialists to the right job groups.  The medics were sacked on June 24 after participating in the strike for three weeks.
