Political Scientist Alex Ng’oma says there is no need to create the office of the Physician General as proposed by the Zambia Medical Association.
Dr. Ng’oma told QFM News in a telephone interview that there is no need to create such a big office simply to look at the health of one individual.
He said there is need for the Zambia Medical Association to propose something else such as the President going for medical checkups every after three months, which he says is sustainable.

He says in as much as he thinks it is important to monitor the health of the President, there is need for relevant stakeholders to come up with ideas on how best the health of the President will be monitored.
And Dr. Ng’oma says the transparency President Edgar Lungu has exhibited by disclosing his health status is an indication that he is transparent in his governance.
