Kenyans furious over President Ruto’s unfulfilled NHIF promise

The internet never forgets neither do Kenyans do when it comes to taking you back to anything you said despite how the situation was then.

The crazy Kenyans on social media have not spared President William Ruto.

The President is on the trend this time on a viral video taken during his campaigns.

Kabla ya December mwaka huu, kila mmoja wenu mtakuwa na bima ya afya ya NHIF, na kama wewe huna pesa ya kulipia… serikali ya Kenya itakulipia wewe

On February 10th 2022, President William Ruto said he will ensure all Kenyans have free health coverage if he becomes president after the August polls.

The pledge

In the viral video, while addressing his supporters at a roadside rally in Nyamira, the President said that his government will ensure every Kenyan is enrolled on the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) coverage.

He further added that his government will cater the cost for those not able to pay.

“Kabla ya December mwaka huu, kila mmoja wenu mtakuwa na bima ya afya ya NHIF, na kama wewe huna pesa ya kulipia… serikali ya Kenya itakulipia wewe,” said Ruto.

“Kila mtu aende hospitalini, atibiwe na aende nyumbani bila kulipa pesa yoyote. Hospitali italipwa na bima ya afya ya NHIF,” he furthered.

We thank God for hustlers only one day to freedom of health

“Am waiting for my NHIF tomorrow,” wrote one of the users on twitter.

“Kwani hamjui jokes,” wrote @brian_obuut.

“We thank God for hustlers only one day to freedom of health,” wrote @mba_nda.

All eyes are now set to see if the President will fulfill his promise.
