Kenya: Regime jails doctors' union representatives as impasse over strike deepens

Source: Washington Post

"A Kenyan court Monday imprisoned seven top officials from the doctors' union after they refused to call off strike that has paralyzed the nation's health system for the past two months. With more than 5,000 doctors striking, the already dilapidated public health system has all but collapsed and private hospitals have been inundated. … The doctors have halted all talks with the government pending the release of their officials."
