, NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 14 – Doctors and nurses will on Wednesday hold separate meetings to chart the way forward on the strike which is in its second week.

Doctors are set to meet with consultants at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) to consider proposals put forth by the Health Ministry aimed at ending the strike.

They are thereafter expected to decide the way forward on the industrial action which has paralysed operations in public hospitals.

The nurses on the other hand will meet with the Council of Governors in a bid to break the deadlock which has seen the crisis escalate.

On Tuesday, the Labour Relations Court ordered doctors and nurses to resume work after declaring their strike illegal.

The order was issued by Justice Hellen Wasilwa who directed union officials to call off the strike immediately.

But the Secretary General of the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Union Ouma Oluga insisted that the strike is still on.
