The doctors failed to comply with Section 14 of the Medical Practitioners and Dentists Act.

Doctors are required to pay an annual retention fee of Ksh.4,000.
The KMPDB held a meeting in March 29th, 2019 this year and resolved to remove non0-compliant medical practitioners from the register.
The removed medics are supposed to re-apply afresh
