Depute president William Ruto has pledged to lower NHIF payment from ksh.500 to ksh.300 and waivers to poor households.

He said the waivers will only apply to poor households who are unable to pay for monthly NHIF rates to ensure the nation has universal health care services.

Speaking at Mbeere South during a visit to Embu and Kirinyaga County, the DP said that his concern was on the delayed disbursements of funds to the elderly, terminally I’ll and the disabled.

Our government will recognise that this group requires money more urgently than anybody else and will pay this group their monthly rates before it pays any salaries, including for the president,” said DP Ruto.
