Medical insurance restored as Nairobi finally pays Sh57m

City Hall, Nairobi. 

Nairobi MCAs and staff can now breathe a sigh of relief as the Executive has released funds for their medical insurance cover.

This has been lacking since First Assurance, a firm that inked a deal with the assembly in September 2019, pulled out over non-payment of premiums totalling Sh57.46 million.

The accrued premium for MCAs’ medical cover, under the Nairobi County Assembly Members Group Medical Insurance Scheme, stood at Sh31,149,459.

That for assembly staff under the Nairobi County Assembly Staff Group Medical Insurance Scheme totalled Sh26,306,670.


The indefinite suspension of the deal, that also covered MCAs’ families, caused anxiety among the legislators, who accused Nairobi Finance Executive, Ms Pauline Kahiga, of purposely failing to pay the outstanding amount.
