Services in public hospitals will be paralyzed starting Friday following a notice by the Kenya Union of Clinical Officers of industrial action by its members.
The strike which took effect Thursday midnight means operations at public hospitals are likely to be disrupted.
KUCO Secretary-General George Gibore announced the resumption of a nationwide strike after the lapse of the ultimatum given to Governors to sign and start implementing the return to work formula signed between the clinicians and the Ministry of Health last week.
Gibore cited intimidation by the Council of Governors as one of the reasons for downing their tools again.
The strike comes not too long after the medical officers stage a 26 day strike just last month.
