The Employment and Labour Relations court has declared the ongoing doctors’ strike illegal.

However, doctors insist the national job boycott that has paralysed health services across the country is still on.

The Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) on Tuesday said its members would carry on with the strike even as its officials appeared in court.

The court had summoned them for allegedly acting in contempt of court order issues of December 2, stopping the strike that kicked off on December 5.

Immediately after the Milimani Court session, KMPDU Secretary-General Ouma Oluga said the strike would proceed.
