Former Minister Decries False Corruption Allegations

DORA Siliya yesterday described the two radar installation tender-related charges upon which she was arrested on Monday as a charade by little men just caressing their ego.

Speaking to journalists outside the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court holding cell after she was released on a K50 million cash bail yesterday afternoon, Siliya, 41, said it was quite interesting visiting the government Hilton Hotel (Woodlands Police female cell) for a night.

“It was quite interesting visiting the government Hilton Hotel. I had some interesting company and listened to some very interesting stories, really insight, really,” said Siliya, a former transport and communication minister and MMD legislator for Petauke Central.

“I believe that the charges against me are flimsy. I believe that this is once again the arrogance, I believe, of little men to caress their ego because we have gone through these charges before. You the Zambian taxpayers have paid already for me to go to a tribunal for almost a month over the same charges with High Court and Supreme Court judges.”
