Mwalimu Dida Alleges That DP Ruto is Behind The Mandatory NHIF Payment by Households Passed By MPs

Former presidential candidate Mwalimu Dida has accused Deputy President of being behind the bill that now made it compulsory for households to pay 6000 annually to national hospital insurance fund. Mwalimu Dida further claimed that the move meant there is more money to steal.

"The NHIF Bill that Ruto hyped here will force every household to pay 6,000 annually, without a promise of bettering health services. That means, more money to steal. How do you force households to contribute that much but only giving them wheelbarrows as a means for survival?" Mwalimu Dida on Twitter.

MPs last evening approved changes to the NHIF act which now makes it compulsory for every Kenyan above 18yrs to contribute to the fund. Minimum contribution will be Shs 6,000 annually.
