Labour court blocks State from hiring foreign doctors

The Employment and Labour Relations Court has temporarily stopped the government from hiring foreign doctors.

Justice Nelson Abuodha issued the order after five Kenyan doctors sued to stop the State from hiring 500 doctors from Tanzania.

They argue there are trained medics in the country who are unemployed.

Doctors Kahindi, Teddy Menza, Yunas Mohammed Shee, Lilian Nyambeki Magara, Victor Muia Mutisya and Aldran Flavian Liguyani sued the Ministry of Health, the Council of Governors, the Public Service Commission and the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board.

The five also want the court to issue orders compelling the government to absorb 1,400 medical practitioners who are currently jobless but are trained and qualified.

The doctors want the State completely blocked from hiring foreign doctors as well as other medical practitioners.
