Today, President William Ruto questioned the recent court decision that blocked a move that his government was preparing to make.
The National Social Security Fund (NSSF) would be increased from its current value of Sh200 to at least Sh2000, according to the President's government plan.
After a court decided against it, Ruto's idea was not carried forward to the next round. The government shouldn't have increased the sum above Sh200, the court decided.
In order to get his proposal carried through, President Ruto has stated that he intends to visit the court and have a new discussion with them.
"The court ruled that it was improper for us to raise the monthly NSSF donations from Ksh 200... We'll speak with the court once more and inquire about our shared nationality, "Ruto said.
He added that there is a chance the government could completely abolish the NSSF if the court does not change its position.
The President claims that it costs more to run the government organization with the Sh200 they receive from people who save with them.
