Medical Services Minister Professor Anyang Nyong'o has reinstated the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) board barely a day after the acting Head of Civil Service Francis Kimemia suspended it. Nyong'o says Kimemia has no powers to suspend the board of NHIF which falls squarely under his docket, and worse still did so without even consulting him.

Andrew Ochieng reports on this new twist to the NHIF saga.
