Speaking in Ndenderu, Kiambu County, Mr Kenyatta told the medics that they will fired in case they go on an industrial action again.

“We are paying you but you cannot continue to endangering the lives of Kenyans. If they strike again, they will all go home. Not even a single doctor will go back to our hospitals because we already know what we will do,” Kenyatta said.

The Head of State reminded the doctors' of their oath of service noting: “You took an oath to treat patients whether it is day or night; you swore to save life with or without money."

President Kenyatta was accompanied by his Deputy William Ruto to popularize Jubilee Party in the County.

The order comes days after the Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) warned of a looming strike if their salaries were not disbursed.

Earlier, the medics alleged that the Ministry of Health had directed the County Government not to release the pay of the striking doctors.

The medical practitioners recently ended their 100 days strike after finally agreeing on the controversial 2013 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) with the Government.
