For Inadequate Medication Moyiba Residents May dump MP
Thousands of disappointed Residents of Moyiba community have threatened to withdraw their support from their current Member of Parliament for Constituency 102, Honorable Alie Kalokoh if he continues to neglect his responsibility of advocating for the community to benefit from the Free Healthcare initiative to save lives of pregnant women, lactating mothers and children under five.
