William Ruto has faulted the government for having KEMSA as a monopoly. The deputy president said KEMSA was the biggest hindrance in Kenyan public health sector. He wondered where the wisdom was behind making KEMSA the only supplier of much needed medical drugs. Ruto added that he really needed someone to tell him the logic applied in medical chain supply.

Ruto vowed to end the authority's monopoly should he be elected as president in August general elections. The deputy president has said that KEMSA never has drugs when citizens need them despite them keeping drugs in storage until they expire.

William Ruto has a view that importing and supplying drugs should be made competitive. This means that private sector will be able to supply drugs to public hospitals across the country. Ruto feels that move will ensure there is sufficient medicine in Kenyan hospitals. Apart from supplying drugs, private companies will also be able to supply medical kits to public hospitals.
