President Uhuru Kenyatta on Satruday urged Kenyans to register as members of National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) so that they can be able to access medical services.

Uhuru said that through this, Kenyans will not have to worry about hospital costs when they fall sick.

"There is no person who knows when they will require medical services. It would be prudent for all citizens to register themselves with the scheme," Uhuru said.

He said in the next five years the government will expand NHIF services to ensure that the health scheme serves all Kenyans without any challnges.

The president spoke in Kigumo, Murang'a County during the funeral service of the late mama Susan Wairimu Chege.

Deputy President William Ruto and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta also attended the funeral service.

The late Susan Chege who is mother to Murang'a Women Rep Sabina Chege died in a road accident on October 5th.

The father of Sabina, Michael Chege Mutema, was also seriously injured and has been hospitalized for the last two months.

"If the family was not insured by NHIF, they would have had challenges clearing the bill." Uhuru said.

The funeral was attended by Senate Majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen and governors Mwangi wa Iria (Muranga), Jackson Mandago (Uasin Gishu), Joyce Laboso (Bomet) and Ferdinand Waititu (Kiambu).
