Deputy President William Ruto has expressed optimism that the universal health coverage program will get a new lease of life tomorrow as the 12th parliament resumes to discuss the crucial NHIF amendment bill.
According to Dp, the bill will pave the way to the implementation of the UHC, one of the big four agendas the jubilee administration had pledged in their 2017 manifesto.
Taking to official Twitter account Dp Ruto tweeted "The NHIF(amendment) Bill is 4yrs behind schedule delaying the rollout of UHC. Tomorrow is the single most important day in the life of the 12th Parliament as Kenyans await the passage of the Bill so that millions of struggling families can have access to health insurance.WAITING".
Despite being an outsider in his government Dp Ruto is keen to see out that the government delivers what they had promised Kenyans. Despite being not invited to cabinet meetings he is always ready to support his boss.
