President Ruto’s hilarious warning to a man eyeing CS Nakhumicha

President William Ruto stirred laughter at a rally in Bungoma County on Thursday, February 1, 2024, when he cautioned a male attendee from eyeing Health Cabinet Secretary Susan Nakhumicha.

The head of state was addressing matters to improve the health sector in the country when he noticed a man seemingly attracted by the CS.

“We want to have enough nurses, and we have agreed to improve the health sector in Kenya. I am with my CS here – referring to Nakhumicha, and she will plan everything. She has heard everything,” said the President.

During the rally in Bungoma County, the head of state briefly paused his address to “caution” the man hilariously.

“You stop, she is someone’s wife. I see someone is excited, what are you excited about?” the President joked, amid laughter.

Following the President’s tour in the Western region of Kenya, he unveiled various development projects, including the construction of Naitiri Fresh Produce Market and the tarmacking of the 40 Km Misikhu-Brigadier Road in Tongaren Constituency.

These projects, he said, will boost trade and ease access to resources and services in Bungoma County and other parts of Western Kenya.

Naitiri Market in Tongaren will serve more than 2, 000 traders, including Mama Mbogas, the President said, adding, the facility will also provide linkages with the local economy as part of our revitalization of markets program.

Apart from CS Nakhumicha, Dr Ruto was also accompanied by the Deputy President, Rigathi Gachagua, Speaker of the National Assembly, Mr Moses Wetang’ula, Governor Ken Lusaka (Bungoma), MPs, and MCAs from the region.

Ms Nakhumicha was appointed as the Health CS in 2022 when President Ruto assumed office, alongside other Cabinet Secretaries.

The CS is spearheading changes in the Health Sector, including phasing out the controversial National Health Insurance (NHIF), which will be replaced by the National Social Health Insurance Fund (NSHIF).
