Siliya Fires Back on US Trip…It is not Minsitry of Dora

dora-swearing-in1Agriculture Minister Dora Siliya bit the bullet by responding to his critics over her recent holiday in the United States at the time the country is in the heat of an army worm attack of maize.

Siliya never shy to give it all said that she never carried the Ministry of Agriculture with her wherever she went stressing that government departments remained functioning in the absence of ministers.

She said that her counterpart at the Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries had been acting in her absence hence having the situation under control.

The flamboyant Petauke lawmaker was reportedly on holiday in Los Angeles with her lover and captured public attention with photographic depiction of her trip where she famously got a picture with former World Boxing Champion Mike Tyson.

Siliya said that the ministry had a permanent secretary and directors to take up roles in her absence.
“It is the Ministry of Agriculture and not the Ministry of Dora Siliya, I didn’t carry the whole Ministry with me on holiday,” she said.

On reports in the Namibian press that she had gone on holiday with the husband of daughter to Namibian President Hage Geingob Siliya said that Zambians enjoyed talking about trivial matters.
“We are in the middle of a serious outbreak of pests eating our maize fields and people want to start discussing trivial issues? Let us get serious as Zambians,” she said.

Siliya is back in the country and getting on with her official duties.

    Nemu uzani neo kuti Dora aliye mulandu. As for the other “sensual matters”, those are none of our business but for her moral conscience to bear. She was NOT AWOL but on official leave formally granted by her supervising officer. The irony was in the visual press coverage of political leaders “touring” the fields “fighting” army worms without any real idea of what was to be done. Professionalize the operations of the civil service so that appropriately trained and skilled technocrats deal with these matters unhindered, and this should be across the board. TAKE THE CADRES OUT OF THE PUBLIC SERVICE EQUATION. In fact all of Dora’s “social leakages” must have been orchestrated by the pro “old PF” faction. The ministry of finance has no money for most govt operations (including FISP, retirees, education bursaries, health etc.) and no one is asking the “bemba patriarch” ex finance minister ABC why the treasury is empty. The blame is being piled on those that took over an empty “vault”.

    Ubuntu kukwata isoni ! It took our President and Mama Inonge to tour farmers while you went to enjoy! NO no no……. us pipo who put you in office we expect you to do better than that. Swallow your pride and simply apologise to all Zambians. Meanwhile you can do better Under Commerce or communication. Hope our president may consider changing you to another ministry. I like you because you can deliver but under Agric its a mismatch.

      The woman was on official leave and truly owes us no apology for taking a private vacation hopefully with her legitimately earned income. Those that were in office and failed to respond to the FISP and army worm challenges are the ones that owe zambia an apology. As for those “saints” judging her morality, I hope you are squeaky clean, if you aren’t the ones that “pondoka” from kabulonga to kanyama leaving behind your bath tubs to go and bathe from a “shomeka” (galvanized iron “tub”). At least Dora had a better holiday destination than some of the “exotic resorts” you disappear to.

    Late President Sata was right naming her Dora Silit. Using tax payers money in the quest for orgasm won’t be tolerated in Zambia. How can you run away from ministerial duties just for pics and romance

      It’s really refreshing to note that we have saints/angels like sechaba who have no sin and may freely cast moral stones at Dora. The key issue that crippled FISP was a lack of money to pay input suppliers. The task of raising govt revenue and onward budget allocation to spend on FISP and tackling disasters like pestilences is a function of the finance ministry, NOT agriculture. Let’s be objective. The finance minister also falls under the supervision of the President. PF are throwing Dora “under the bus” to absolve themselves of any blame. Look around zambia and tell us what’s properly working in the country. Fiscally zambia is collapsing.

      Easy, pick up a knapsack sprayer and go into the field. Don’t wait for Dora. If you ask experienced tomato farmers they’ll likely tell you that in the absence of branded pesticides a concentrated household detergent powder solution will alternatively eradicate most “tudoyo” in your garden. Go and spray your maize using concentrated boom detergent powder solution to save your maize!

    If LPM and MCS were to be brought back to life they would weep just like Jesus did when he envisioned the suffering of the people. They would not believe what they would find their successors doing. RB and corruption, ECL and the economy and appointments!

    WHAT A DISCOURAGING RESPONSE. IF LUNGU LETS HER GET AWAY WITH IT THEN I GUESS WE ARE LEFT TO THE MERCY OF THE HEAVENS. HOW DOES A MINISTER HAVE SUCH A CASUAL APPROACH TO HER DUTIES? THIS WAS A CRISIS AND SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE ONE. THEN ON THE ISSUE OF WHO SHE WAS WITH(HUSBAND OF SOME ONE ELSE) I THOUGHT ZAMBIA IS A CHRISTIAN NATION AND AS SUCH OUR LEADERS SHOULD TRY TO LEAD US IN THAT DIRECTION. I COULDN’T CARE LESS WHO SHE IS WITH WHEN SHE IS ON HER PERSONAL TIME. HOWEVER MR LUNGU SHOULDN’T TURN AROUND AND THROW THAT CHRISTIAN NATION TALK IN OUR FACE WHEN ONE OF HIS MINISTERS IS COMMITTING OPEN ADULTERY AND HE DOES NOTHING!
