Siliya shuns UNZA graduation

General News Siliya shuns UNZA graduation

Education minister Dora Siliya makes a speech during the 40th Anniversary celebrations for Naboye Hogh School in Kafue

Education Minister, Dora Siliya has shunned officiating at the University of Zambia UNZA graduation ceremony for the second consecutive year.

UNZA today held the 40th graduation ceremony without the presence of any official from the ministry of education and 1,941 students graduated today in various fields.

Speaking during the graduation ceremony UNZA vice chancellor, Professor Geofrey Simukanga highlighted the continued infrastructure challenges facing the institution.

He said the problem of student accommodation and lecturing theaters has been a never ending challenge for the highest learning institution in the country.

Professor Simukanga also noted that the institution which has a total student population of 13,000 with 10,000 of those on fulltime, has been struggling to accommodate the students because the institution only has the capacity to accommodate 3,243 students.

And UNZASU president, Duncan Nyirongo challenged the National Constitution Conference NCC to ensure that the economic, social and cultural rights are included in the constitution.

He further questioned government’s decision to increase the retirement age when the unemployment levels among the youth in the country are high.

  1. Waooo, how is she the Minister then if she can not attend? Well, too rural! She knows she can not face them students pa campas!

  2. This is an academic gathering, only intelligent academics should officiate. Government officials have online degrees from Phoenix University!

  3. I feel so ashamed as a Zambian reading this article right now. This leaves no doubt about the priority level on which our government has placed higher education. I would have thought this would be an opportunity on which these MMD *****s would have pounced on…making stump speeches! But I guess they were too busy at the Int’l airport greeting RB from yet another one of his trips!

    Shame on us for letting them continue such abhorrent behaviour!

  4. You have to consider the background to appreciate what has happened. Dora is doing just fine, leave those rogues to themselves. Too bad for the good students but they no doubt understand the cheapness of of “educated” kaponyas among them and they have to pay the price.

  5. Dora is better being in Naboye than being with Students who can be used any time any how by failures like Sata and a Pre School Teacher by Qualification Mumbi Phiri. I am also better getting a Degree from Mancossa than Our Kalingalinga School of confusion

  6. Ha ha ha she couldn`t have be left in peace by ba “monk”.She did a nice thing otherwise it could have been “miss piggy” shouts from the students.

  7. Ha ha ha she couldn`t have had been left in peace by ba “monk”.She did a nice thing otherwise it could have had been “miss piggy” shouts from the students.

  8. I was at the CBU graduation ceremony that was held two weeks ago. she wasn’t there either. neitehr any official from the ministry. Oh how I miss KK. True leader.

  9. Ala kwena RB and his minister will neva seaze to amuze me with their drama..how can the biggest and highest learning institution in the country hold the 40th graduation ceremony without the minister of education not even her deputy to officiate it?ndyekusila kwaziko uku..nowander there are higher levels of unemployment in zed coz the GRZ is the main employer bt they decide to shun the ceremony..wat a shame learders of Zambia..lol like this how can some1 obtain prestige education at home?

  10. Siliya & Zambia
    I am disappointed to see people complaining of Siliya’s absence from graduations. This lady isnt worth any grain of salt and she knows it thats why she decided to stay away from these functions. She has no plan for education in Zambia period. Im sure its MMD cadres complaining about her absence. The lady knows nothing but reading ZNBC news. This lady knows when to avoid embarrassment and she did a good job staying away from graduations to avoid bringing MMD further down. VOTE them out!!!!

  11. Former students can help to alleviate the challenges that the institution faces. A lot of people including myself have walked through UNZA but few people have done anything to improve it. What is required is organizing former students and an account to be create where all donations can be received.

  12. Katherine, but where is the government in all this. This is the Zambian governments baby. Bet you just one of rupiahs trips would build a hostel or two.

  13. Wasn’t it the same UNZA students who staged a protest against her appointment as Minister of Ed? She certainly wouldn’t have been welcome. However , there should have been some official representation from the higher levels of the ministry.

  14. Respect is very important, if we respect one another then we will move forward, the students have threatened to embarrass Ms Siliya if she steps a foot on their premises because they do not approve of her appointment.

  15. I think if indeed she was scared of been embarrassed by the students she could have decided to send someone to represent her ,even the PS could have been the right person to attend on her behalf in this matter.

  16. What do you expect from a person of her calibre? Quite alright she has passed through university but I wouldn’t be surprised that she was not attending lectures and probably F.U.C.K.E.D her teachers to get the degree. She is such a B.I.T.CH.!

  17. #22 THERMOMETER THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS. AS LONG AS BAKAPONYA INFILTRATE UNZA THEN ITS BETTER DORA WHO IS A PRODUCT OF THE SAME SCH STAYS AWAY SHE HAS BETTER THINGS TO DO THAN RISK HER LIFE. #27 ACHIMWENE DORA IS A SUCCESS STORY FROM HER HUMBLE DAYS AT ZNBC TO UNZA. HAVE YOU EVER SCREWED HER FOR YOU TO CALL HER A WHORE. DORA IS NOT AS CHEAP AS YOU WANT TO PTU HER SHE IS A WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE WHO SHOULD BE A ROLE MODEL TO YOUR KIDS. WHO WOULD NOT WANT HER DAUGHTER TO ACHIEVE WHAT DORA HAS. SHE IS JUST A DAMN HARD WORKER WHO DERSEVES WHAT SHE HAS.OU MUST BE SULKING WITH ENVY

  18. #6.
    Unza has never had kaponyas if you the meaning of the wpord kaponya then you will realise that Kaponyas are found in streets. The fact that you could not make to unza during your time does not mean you should prolong your hatred for those who made it. The fact will remain, you like it or not, that UNZA is the biggest university in Zambia and has produced men and women of high intellectual standing than your low life being.

    If you do not have a good life, try reconstruct then atleast you will mind your language.

  19. #6 (Wapya Munzi) uli imbushi u failure in life. If u failed to go to UNZA or CBU it does not mean u shud give yoself false confidence. U call Mankosa or whatever a university? What is Mankosa, is it Mberere or mbuzi? Wheteher u like it UNZA or CBU are the recognised highest institutions of learning so dola was supposed to attend at no cost, ala!!!

  20. Obviously she had more important issues to attend to, and who said it is a must that the Education minister should attend?The chancellor is the right person to attend to such.Infact her absence reduces costs e.g.fuel,lunch allowances,snacks etc.

  21. F.u.c.k that h.o.l.e !!! Busy attending useless ceremonies and shunning important ones. Ya that bi.t.ch. surprises me sometimes.

  22. #29 kemps mwape mwewa may I quot you, THE FACT WILL REMAIN UNZA IS THE BIGGEST UNIVERSITY INZAMBIA AND HAS PRODUCED MEN AND WOMEN OF HIGH INTERLECTUAL STANDING, I agree with you but let me tell the readreship that Dora Siliya is a product of unza she worked very hard for her degree and thats why she attracts good jobs. lets respect her standing in society

  23. #32 mwebeni when you insult a highly respectable lady like dora think of noko and your ugly wife. have you ever screwed dora for you to call her names. can you give me a name of a person you know who went out with dora. sorry about bringing in your mum but pliz only when you know how your wife gets screwed should you refer to dora. its not her who has made you to endure a miserable life. work hard like dora then you will also have the comfort she is enjoying otherwise you continue gnashing your reeth forever

  24. What does Dora’s presence or absence add to anything? Why do we expect politicians to attend every function? It is such attitudes that make politicians feel indispensable.

  25. in life and in death,unza ni unza…chikubabeni.hard luck dora,we hate mmd at unza.try colleges n these franchised universities..
