Kenyan doctors have rejected a recent pay rise offer by President Uhuru Kenyatta in his attempt to end the month-long strike that has paralysed operations in public hospitals countrywide.

The doctors insist that the government implements a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) signed in 2013.

On Tuesday, during a six-hour-long meeting with the union representatives, President Kenyatta offered a 40 per cent salary increase that would have seen the least paid medic earn about $2,000, up from the current $1,400.
