When the National Police Service's contract with the state-owned National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) ended earlier this year, they were able to hire a new insurance service provider. A private group of insurance companies won the bid, and they were hired to cover all of the people who work for the national police service.
But there were complaints because lower-ranking officers said they didn't get the same benefits as they did with NHIF.
Former Uhuru Kenyatta supporter and blogger Pauline Njoroge was upset by President William Ruto's promise that police officers will no longer have to buy their own uniforms.
Njoroge says that the president's words are just a trick to trick the officers and hide the mess that the new insurance policy has caused.
She said, "With the police health insurance cover, President William Ruto is trying to hide the mess."
