Mr liyoka points out that the various interventions on recruitment and drug supply is worth commending but what is needed is to ensure sustenance in the long run.

Meanwhile Biomedical Union of Zambia general secretary Inambao Sitwala observes that all interventions in the health sector that have been implemented by the new dawn government are an indication that it means well for the Zambian people.

Mr Sitwala has however the new dawn administration to ensure that all the newly recruited health personals are put on the pay-role as quick as possible.

And Governance Electoral Advocacy Research Services initiative Executive Director McDonald Chipenzi the new dawn has equally scored well as far as issues of governance are concerned.

But Patriots for Economic Progress leader Sean Tembo says the UPND have not done anything tangible in their almost one year in office.

Mr Tembo says everything that has been done is a result of the works started in the previous regime and nothing by the UPND.
