Thursday September 26, 2019-University of Nairobi don, Prof Herman Manyora, has said President Uhuru Kenyatta has been going around the world lying that Kenya has Universal Health Coverage yet millions of Kenyans are dying annually due to lack of proper medical care.
On Tuesday, Uhuru won the Political Leadership Award for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) from the African Union, Access Challenge.
Manyora said hardly any citizen celebrated or
congratulated Uhuru for his achievement because they knew it is all lies.
“Health care has totally collapsed in this country. If you didn’t have insurance cover, you’d know what Kenyans are going through. Even NHIF is a fraud," Manyora said.
In 2018, the government launched UHC in pilot counties; Machakos, Isiolo, Nyeri and Kisumu, before rolling out the programme in the whole country.
Manyora said Uhuru appears to be "a motivation speaker who visits Kenya once" since he is clueless about what is happening to millions of poor Kenyans.
