Description

The Federation of Kenya Employers has taken issue with the decision by the National Hospital Insurance Fund to implement new statutory contribution rates for all salaried employees without engaging it. FKE, which learnt of the new rates from the media, says that making such unilateral decisions could bring to question the capacity of the NHIF to handle the intended changes in a well thought-out manner. The employers' body is also concerned that the calls for a referendum are coming at a time when the country is already reeling from other factors that have made it a less favorable destination for investors. FKE says it's retrogressive to allow for issues that can be solved through consultations to create an environment for political competition just one year after the general election.
