The Council of Governors (CoG) has directed striking doctors to resume duty by Wednesday failure to which they will lose their jobs.
CoG Chairman, Peter Munya says all the vacant positions will be advertised and new doctors recruited to restore services in public hospitals if the doctors fail to turn up for work.
Munya says the 4 billion shilling offer by the National Government is reasonable and has faulted the doctors for rejecting it.
Munya who was accompanied by Health Cabinet Secretary, Cleopa Mailu, says they are considering absorbing graduates to take up vacant positions.
The medics are demanding the full implementation of the 2013 Collective Bargaining Agreement-CBA saying anything short of it is not an offer.
While the standoff remains thousands of Kenyans in public hospitals continue to suffer with cases of deaths reported in some facilities.
