The doctors will be demonstrating to the Office of the President, that of Prime Minister and later Ministry of Medical Services to air their grievances.
The doctors will later on head to Parliament buildings where they are expected to petition Parliament over their grievances.
The march is currently on.
The doctors are protesting what they are terming as the government’s reluctance to address their demands as agreed on during return-to-work formulae signed last year.
The doctors' strike which has been on for the last one week has paralysed operations in all government hospitals.
The government through the Ministry of Medical Services withdrew practicing rights for registrar in Kenyatta National Hospital.
On Tuesday, the Kenyatta National Hospital Chief Executive Officer Richard Lesiyampe said that the hospital’s management has put in place a mediation team to discuss with the government the demands put across by the registrar doctors.
In the meantime, the Kenya National Union of Nurses has scheduled a press conference today (Wednesday) afternoon to call a nationwide strike for all doctors.
Speaking to Citizen TV on phone, the Nurses’ Union Secretary General Seth Panyako said the strike will paralyse all government hospitals operations.
Panyako said the nurses’ strike will start on September 25th, which is Tuesday next week.
Panyako said that the nurses will be joining the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital nurses who went on strike together with the doctors last week.
