Bishop Anyolo urged the government to honor the collective bargaining agreement signed with doctors three years ago to bring to an end the current stalemate.He however said it was unfair for doctors to abandon innocent patients and subject them to immense suffering. The bishops have therefore urged medics to respond to medical emergencies and save lives even as they engage in talks with the government.
They also appealed to the government to prioritize the health of its citizenry and create an harmonious environment for dialogue at both the county and national level as away of bringing a solution.
