Kenyan doctors who are doing post-graduate training took to the streets of Nairobi to protest against the fact that the funding meant to help pay for their training has been withheld by the ministry of health.
The Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) says 400 government-sponsored medical specialists in training have not had their school fees paid for the last three years.
The doctors said they would protest for the next two weeks if the ministry fails to release the money.
The union has further threatened full-blown industrial action and the withdrawal of services.
The union is also demanding that the University of Nairobi complies with court orders issued last year to cancel the increase of fees charged to medical students.
