BY UPESI NEWS REPORTER,NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 9- Striking doctors have been given until Wednesday to resume work or lose their jobs.

Council of Governors Chairman Peter Munya says all the vacant positions will be advertised and new doctors recruited to restore services in public hospitals if the doctors do not resume work.

Munya says the Sh4 billion offer by the National Government is reasonable and has faulted the doctors for rejecting it.

Munya who was accompanied by Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Mailu says they are considering absorbing graduates to take up vacant positions.
