Officials of the Doctor’s union should be arrested after they evaded court summons for their sentencing.

Justice Hellen Wasilwa also directed the OCS Kilimani Police station to enforce the said warrants of arrest.

“I can’t do anything else but to issue a warrant of arrest,” Judge Wasilwa said adding that if the doctors union officials do not appear in court then the police should drag them to court.

The matter will be mentioned on Thursday.

In December last year, Justice Wasilwa found Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union officials guilty of contempt.

She said that it was essential that court orders are obeyed and that the court will not shy away from punishing offenders.

She said the doctors had refused to call off the strike as directed by the court and their officials only appeared in court after being summoned, which she said were considerable grounds for contempt.
