Vanuatu health minister Abel reinstated

1:01 pm on 11 April 2012

Vanuatu's health minister Willie Reuben Abel has been reinstated, a month after he was dismissed.

The Prime Minister Sato Kilman never said why he had sacked Mr Abel but it was thought he was dismissed for being critical of the government.

But now the Prime Minister says he has confidence in Mr Abel and says he has the right qualities to help tackle the health challenges facing the country.
