Kalonzo: Azimio in Solidarity with Striking Doctors

Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition Tuesday declared their support for the Striking doctors.

The 27-day doctors’ strike has disrupted healthcare service leaving patients without healthcare. According to Azimio, over 500 patients have died nationwide as a result of the crisis.

Speaking to the press at Jaramogi Ongiga Foundation Kalonzo asked the Kenya Kwanza regime to take doctors’ demands seriously.

Kalonzo warned that Azimio’s team has been following the strike keenly and they are going to take action if the president doesn’t step up and end the strike.

“We’ve been discussing. And we are watching that space. But for now, we’ve decided to clearly state that we are in solidarity,” said Kalonzo.

“We are Consulting and if they do not stop this, then action will be to join the doctors because demonstrations seem to be the only language that the Kenya Kwanza government understands,” he added.

Azimio also condemned Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki for terming the doctor’s strike illegal.

They expressed concerns this may be a way for the government to start using teargas on the protesting doctors which they warned they will not allow.

Kenyan Doctors went into the streets to agitate for better working conditions and improvement of the remuneration saying the government has failed to honour a binding Mou signed in 2017.
