President William Ruto has assured Kenyans that reforms in the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) are aimed at ensuring universal healthcare for all.

He told off critics of the reforms, saying they were up to no good and were opposed to the transformation of the country.

President Ruto noted that the majority of Kenyans who are not in formal employment will now be expected to pay KSh300 monthly NHIF contributions down from KSh500.

Speaking when he distributed Christmas gifts to residents of Turbo Constituency and neighbouring areas at his Sugoi home, Uasin Gishu County, President Ruto said the Government was keen to ensure Kenyans do not sell their property to access healthcare.

“We have reduced monthly payments to NHIF to make it easy for most people. The Government will pay for those who do not have the means to pay,” he said.

The President said it was wrong for some people to rush to court to stop projects aimed at improving the lives of Kenyans, including affordable housing.

“Under the affordable housing programme, 200,000 houses will be built every year. So far, more than 120,000 people have been employed in the programme,” said President Ruto.

He added: “It’s our responsibility to make Kenya greater and not to destroy.”

At the same time, the Head of State asked Kenyans to take advantage of the Hustler Fund to start and support viable income-generating activities.

He said the fund has transformed the lives of many Kenyans at the bottom of the economic pyramid, especially in the rural areas.

“As you borrow from the Hustler Fund, also remember to pay to help others get access to the funds,” he said.

President Ruto asked parents to take advantage of the government’s commitment to invest in education by taking their children to school.
