Government orders doctors back to hospital wards or face fire


Government has ordered doctors to return to work or risk losing their jobs.

Doctors across the country went on strike this week after government rejected their request to increase their salaries and improve their working conditions.

Health minister Dr. Jen Ruth Acen in a seven guideline directive blasted that the strike is illegal.

Dr. Acen said: "To all health workers in Uganda and the general public, all medical workers who were misled to join the strike must resume work with immediate effect and those who adhere to this directive shall not be subjected to any disciplinary action."

The minister stated: "All health workers who resume duty shall be provided adequate protection by the government."

She warned: "All interns who will not adhere to this directive shall forfeit their internship and shall be required to reapply for consideration."
