On the status of the ‘Linda Mama’ initiative, the CS refuted claims that the current government had abolished the program, which has attracted widespread public outcry.
In response to the same claim, the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) also quelled rumours of the possible discontinuation of the program.
