The Kenyan government on Tuesday ordered striking medical staff to go back to work and said it had withdrawn an offer of a 50 percent pay hike after the workers' union became inflexible in their negotiations.
It had offered the increase on condition the union called off strike."Consequently for failure to call off the strike, the government has now rescinded this offer and there will be no further negotiations," it said in a statement.
Doctors were expected to "resume duty ...with immediate effect."
