A few short months after the govt gushed about a budgetary surplus the first the county has ever seen since almost 2 decades ago according to the Finance Minister, The Health Minister has come out to say the govt has no money to pay the doctors what they are asking for Newsday reports.

Speaking at a post-cabinet briefing the Minister said:

The issue of dialoguing never stopped. As a ministry, we have been talking to the junior doctors.
We have been talking to the senior doctors. The other time, I had junior doctors who came to my office.

We made each other see the reality that there is no money. We even invited personnel from the Ministry of Finance who explained to them in detail and they were left without any doubt that there was no money in government coffers,

The doctors have been on strike for 70 days now and the govt has recently offered the food, accommodation and transport as part of their benefits.
