DP Ruto spends Sh10 Million in Today's event
Ruto delivered the whopping Sh10 Million in a backpack
At the function, DP Ruto together with the Head of State, who is out of the country bought 700 goats each, all equivalent to Ksh10 million.
Kajiado County in collaboration with National Hospital Insurance fund put up the auction of goats and sheep to enable Kajiado residents benefit from NHIF programme.
Each goat or sheep was entitled to one year insurance.
“Mdosi yangu anaitwa Uhuru Kenyatta mnajua ako na familia kubwa ya kulisha, ameniambia nimununulie mbuzi mia saba hio ni shilingi milioni tao. Na mimi mtu yake ya mkono nanunua mbuzi mia saba, hio ni shilingi milioni tano” said Ruto. Loosely translated (my boss Uhuru Kenyatta has got a huge family to feed and has told me to buy him 700 equivalent to 5million and I am also buying 700 goats at a cost of Ksh5 million)
The function was to see more than 5,000 families from Kajiado County benefit from NHIF programme where the market price of a goat will save every individual from the burden of hospital bills.
It was headed by Kajiado County Governor Moses Ole Lenku, who also bought 100 goats at a cost of Ksh750,000 whereas Kenya Commercial Bank dished out cheques of Ksh100,000 for 10 goats.
The function is indistinguishable to the one held in the County on May 12 this year, where Governor Lenku wanted residents to sacrifice one goat a year to insure themselves against diseases.
“It takes Ksh 6,000to cover two parents and all their children. This can be realised by selling one goat every year” Lenku stated.
