LOP tasks govt to address doctor’s concerns

By Moses Kyeyune:

The Leader of Opposition Parliament Winnie Kiiza has tasked government to address concerns by striking doctors rather than coercing them back to work.

The call comes in the midst of controversy after doctors declared an industrial action last week, demanding better pay and improved working conditions.

The strike has since paralysed business in health facilities, prompting government to swing into action with an iron hand.

However, in a press conference at Parliament today, Kiiza says that government must swallow its pride and handle medical workers’ demands with humility.
