Militant junior doctor sparks outrage over his ‘white supremacist patriarchy’ rants
An outspoken doctor-in-training who left his union after sensationally claiming we live in a “white supremacist patriarchy” has been quietly accepted back.
Dr. Kayode Oki was suspended from the governing council of the British Medical Association last month, hours after he caused a stir with a series of outrageous tweets – including one that said white women ‘scare me’.
The self-proclaimed “troublemaker” also attacked members of his own profession for their “willingness to support white supremacist rhetoric.”
The militant union, which has brought the NHS to a standstill with a series of strikes, has removed Dr Oki from his position ‘with immediate effect’ and revealed he was under investigation over a complaint.
Officials never confirmed what prompted their sudden decision, claiming the details were confidential.
Dr. Kayode Oki was removed from the governing council of the British Medical Association (BMA) last month after sparking anger with a series of outrageous tweets — including one that said white women ‘scare me’
The self-proclaimed ‘troublemaker’ also attacked members of his own profession for their ‘willingness to support white supremacist rhetoric’
Dr. Oki, on the far right of a strike by young doctors in London on March 13, has also tweeted that he refused to “listen to podcasts or read books by white men,” that “racism is a rite of passage for white teenagers,” and that “we exist under’ a ‘cis-white patriarchy’
Yet it happened shortly after Dr. Oki resurfaced and the ensuing outcry, with one MP denouncing his comments as ‘utter nonsense’.
Now it can be revealed that he was allowed back into the herd just 11 days later after it was determined that he had not damaged the reputation of the BMA.
A spokesperson said: ‘The panel has carefully considered the relevant information and has concluded that a suspension is no longer necessary in this case and therefore Dr Oki was able to return to BMA with immediate effect.’
Still, the full investigation into the complaint about Dr. OK going on.
MailOnline understands he could still be removed from the governing council if the investigation determines that tougher sanctions are needed.
Young medics were outraged by Dr. Oki and started a petition signed by thousands desperate to reverse the decision.
Dr. Oki, who attended the University of Dundee, was previously Deputy Chair of the BMA’s Student Medical Committee
He also personally attacked fellow doctors for their “willingness to support white supremacist rhetoric on Twitter”
Dr. Oki also claimed that those from Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds are “sometimes the biggest champions of white supremacy”
According to unearthed tweets from 2021, he has also accused white women of being ‘scary’ and stealing ideas from black people
His comments have sparked anger among Conservative MPs who denounced the ‘divisive’ BMA for promoting Mr Oki’s ‘radical remarks’.
The junior doctor has also appeared as a panelist on the British Medical Journal’s Sharp Scratch podcast for medical students and junior doctors
From unearthed tweets from Dr. Oki also revealed that he once told his followers that he refused to “listen to podcasts or read books by white men.”
He also described “racism as a rite of passage for white teens” and claimed that we exist under a “cis-white patriarchy.” Cis-it refers to a person who is heterosexual and identifies with their birth gender.
As for lifting his suspension, Dr. Oki told the British medical journal: “I’m glad I’m back.”
He admitted he was “moved by the outpouring of public support,” which saw media reports of his claims labeled “racist.”
Dr. Oki, a first-year doctor, added: ‘There is a lot to learn and work on racial literacy in the UK and in particular the medical community.’ He vowed to “play a part” in such changes.
He did not respond to MailOnline’s request for comment, submitted through the BMA.
Before his suspension, he told The Sun he was “disappointed” that his personal views were “taken without the context such complex subjects deserve.”
Dr. Oki, who studied at the University of Dundee, tweeted days later: “I was elected on a platform of a “troublemaker” and happy to speak truth to power.
“I was chosen because of these tweets. They are not new. The context of these tweets is me standing up for other people. There’s a lot to learn about race and sexism.”
