On the other hand, the community health volunteers also said that they did not get enough money and tools to facilitate their work. Currently, there are only 10,000 community health volunteers in Nakuru county. Most of them complained of basic tools.

The representative of the community health workers also urged the deputy president to be discussing issues with the health care providers.

Nonetheless, the issue of NHIF was also brought forward. William Ruto promised the people that everyone will have an opportunity to visit any health facility. On matters of paying the NHIF, a person will pay depending on what he earns.

Giving an example, he told the people of Nakuru that he pays 1700 for the NHIF yet he earns a million while boda boda operator who earns 7500 a month pays 500. Ruto cited that this was unfair and that he might reduce the payment to at least three hundred shillings or depending with what a person earns.

Introduction of ambulances

Additionally, Governor Alfred Mutua also urged the senator of Nakuru to introduce ambulances in the county. This ambulances will be taking people to hospitals for free and no payment will be required.
