Health Minister Doctor Ifereimi Waqainabete has labelled suggestions by SODELPA MP Simione Rasova on rural women breast-feeding their 6 and 7 year old children as “unacceptable”.

In his response to the 2019/2020 National Budget, Waqainabete said mothers don’t breast-feed when children are more than 2 years and Rasova is belittling rural women.
