Dora Siliya responds to GBM’s “Go back to the Newsroom Remark”

General News Dora Siliya responds to GBM's "Go back to the Newsroom Remark"

GEOFREY Bwalya Mwamba is a frustrated soul who is trying to heal from the defeat the UPND suffered at the hands of the Patriotic Front (PF) in the 2016 general elections by resorting to slandering and maligning others, Agriculture Minister Dora Siliya has charged.

Ms Siliya said Mr Mwamba was of the miscued belief that defaming others was the best way of attracting sympathy from Zambians after his desire to be the country’s vice-president was rejected by Zambians through the ballot.

She said that Mr Mwamba, who is the UPND vice-president for administration, was frustrated and trying to comfort himself over the election loss by irresponsibly attacking innocent people.

Ms Siliya was reacting to Mr Mwamba’s claims that the Agriculture Minister was not fit to hold her office and should, therefore, go back to the newsroom where she came from.

Ms Siliya said that she was appointed to her position by President Edgar Lungu whom she said represented the majority Zambians because he believed in her abilities.

Ms Siliya indicated that her loyalty only lies with President Lungu and the Zambian people and not Mr Mwamba whom she described as a man with an ego.

“Mr Mwamba is a frustrated soul trying to heal from the defeat the UPND suffered at the hands of the PF in the last general elections. If it will help him heal since the UPND loss to PF, he can continue talking about me. However, I was appointed by a President who believes in my capacity and who represents the majority of Zambians. That is where my loyalty lies,” Ms Siliya said.

Ms Siliya said that her history indicated that she came from the newsroom as a journalist but wondered whether Mr Mwamba had any form of background.

She said that Mr Mwamba’s sentiment about her career path also implied that the newsroom was a shameful place for one to come from.

“So GBM can continue to talk about me if he wishes and if it makes him feel better. At least I have been to a newsroom but I don’t know where he has been,” said Ms Siliya.

And Ms Siliya said that she had important things to actualise other than talking about Mr Mwamba whom she said was bitter that his political ambitions had been dashed by the PF’s continued stay in power.

She said that her job was to meet the aspirations of the Zambian people and ensuring that the country was food secure.

    • DORA ALL YOU DO IS RESPOND TO STATEMENTS. WHEN DO YOU ACTUALLY FIND TIME TO PERFORM YOUR DUTIES AS A MINISTER? EVERYDAY EVERYDAY MAKING STATEMENTS!! THEN YOU GO ON HOLIDAY. PLEASE BA MINISTER BELELA GO TO YOUR OFFICE AND SHOW US SOME RESULTS.

    • GBM is a useless opportunistic politician who overrates himself and doesnt know what he cant do. Now go back to this sentence and replace the subject “GBM” with the subject “Dora Siliya” and both sentences will be speaking the truth, and nothing but the truth.

    • Hahaha Dora, you spend 30 minutes talking about Mwamba and then you say that you ” had important things to actualise other than taking about Mr. Mwamba…” what a contradiction..

    • Exactly what former Defense Minister GBM said, that Dora is best at issuing news. News readers are better than what Dora is doing now.
      We all know where GBM came from….

    • Ms Siliya, Of course GBM rants senselessly, but you’re not behaving any differently yourself by just talking back at him WITHOUT addressing the material facts that concern every Zambian about your I DONT CARE attitude to the crisis in your Ministry. None of what you’re saying here will solve the situation.

    • Ba Dora..even though I’m no big fan of yours its very simple if you want to attack GBV- first of all everyone in Lsk knows he used to push drugs in the early to mid 90s – yes GBV is a former drug dealer along the likes of VJ. Secondly GBV is known wife beater. Thirdly GBV was a corrupt minister that abused his office in awarding his own company with his daughter as a front a contract worth USD 29 million! So how does this thing called GBV start calling others names? Don’t throw stones when you live in glass houses!

    • Just the thought of Dora Siliya being a government minister is frightening for countries future.
      Dumb as she is, any normal President should not give her such delicate responsibilities.
      Such appointments are some of the indications the Zambian president has no intention to bring about badly needed development.
      What is Dora’s legacy in MMD?

    • GBM is spot on. Dora agric minister? This is the worst person in this role ever, ask anyone at the ministry and you will hear how things are falling apart. Let us be serious and appoint people on merit.

    • @O I agree with you. Both GBM and Dora Siliya are useless. Any sane person can see these opportunists for what they are

    • Which majority are you and your President representing when you were rejected as MMD and even as PF you were rejected and are now ruling by crookedness and imposition? You should be ashamed of yourselves if there is even an iota of conscience in your little minds.

  1. lol GBM you are a form 3 drop out your junior secondary school leaving results are on record at Prince Philip High or need we remind you Kamwala Secondary School. Battering your wife is part of your cv when you briefly held office of minister for defense your belly grew larger as you basically plundered ordering the poor guys in procurement and accounts to pay you before anyone else…FRA was tortured…Ms D you speak of is a graduate from Cambridge a place you can only dream of with all your ill begotten wealth you wouldn’t be admitted!

  2. Kikikiki….ba ci asuka ci GBM. Keep up the good work our beloved and dynamic Dora, we are with you. Leave the fat donkey to kill himself with envy. Running mate, the smell of the republican vice presidency and the scheme of replacing HH as republican president got to his head and everything fell apart on 12 august 2016. You cannot begin to imagine the anger and frustration bottled up inside that big donkey belly!! Never seen a donkey that fat though, must be a lazy one.

  3. Dora just shut up and go to work,the truth is GBM is right about you not performing, please just ask the person who apointed you to give you what you can manage.How do you explain the non availability of farming inputs and we are almost in February ? Dont use your emotions in responding to ba GBM use your brains.

  4. cont: The other day when she was inspecting a maize field ravaged by army worms she was putting on a hip ster ,what ever they call it, and that aready shows us that she does not understand the job .

  5. “And Ms Siliya said that she had important things to actualise other than talking about Mr Mwamba whom she said was bitter that his political ambitions had been dashed by the PF’s continued stay in power.” But you just talked about him Dora. Which is which? Your actions and words are going in different directions

  6. GBM ,please concentrate on your trucks, milling and other businesses. Dora, please concentrate on Army worms, stock borers and late delivery of things. You are both useful to the Republic of Zambia, you are both valuable assets to the country in your own ways. Stop trading vulgar language, it does not help any one. Zambia loves you both, I am in a way also trying to shame the people who are excited to see you trade vulgar language.

  7. We know real winners of 2016 elections but we don’t talk because when you talk you are named rebel .
    Africa is rich but problem is leadership and poor policies.

    • @chainda YOU ARE SO RIGHT. PEOPLE LIKE DORA JUST MAKE THIS WHOLE GOVERNMENT A JOKE. IF I WERE PART OF THIS I WOULD RESIGN ON MORAL GROUNDS. WE DONT HATE DORA NOR TRIVIALIZE HER. SHE DOES IT TO HERSELF. THIS WHOLE GOVERNMENT IS NOT TAKEN SERIOUSLY BECAUSE OF ALL THESE GAMES. THEY DONT REALIZE THAT WHAT THEY DO OR FAIL TO DO HAS REAL CONSEQUENCES IN PEOPLE’S LIVES. THIS IS A JOKE! MAMA WINA PLEASE BRING BACK SOME SENSE. OBVIOUSLY MR LUNGU IS SCARED OF DORA. THATS WHY SHE CAN DO WHATEVER SHE WANTS AND GET AWAY WITH IT.

    • Iris Kaingu may have her faults but putting the two comparatively with Dora my guess is by the time Iris is Dora’s age she’ll have transformed for better while bamayo ba minister is erosion all the way! 100% @ Rue!

  8. Ms siliya gbms background is Food Supplier to GRZ many years ago. The reputation of most of them is that of fraud. The rest I leave to your imagination.

  9. Ladies and Gentlemen!
    Some of us know that you were elected to help the country. Not to be showing us how you can ably insult in papers. We want to know how you are developing the country. If you have failed, leave the stage and we are ready to try other persons.
    We pray for our leaders but they disappoint our God by electing to insult God’s people.
    Stop this art of showing us how you can insult us for electing you.

  10. “At times stammering, Mulumbe told the suspicious MPs how Admarc terminated the maize contract with Kaloswe after discovering the company had no export licence, did not have a single grain as it projected and failed to name the source of its maize.” Reported by Nyasa Times.

  11. Just shut up mweule mwe. Which defeat when your party stole UPND’s victory. ukulileni ifyakwiba our time will come when you shall be Court attendants shamuna.

  12. Stolen election results fits what happen during the last elections .It is only the concourt which would say tabakunyengela ku America .

  13. Her and her blue nail polish. First off a minister is discreet and someone in her position does not use colours fit for a stripper or a call girl. That is very disgraceful, unprofessional and brings attention to herself which she enjoys. Second of all she is not one to talk since she vanished off of the face of the earth during a crisis. What an i*diot she is for even opening her trap. Yes she is not fit to be in the role she is in and belongs mun’gulu ku Kalingalinga. What can this woman really bring to the table other than ukulala nabaume for things. She did not get that position for free and performed a lot of s-ucking. This is not the caliber we want as minister who s-leeps her way to the top. What can she really do except uku-tomba ama gentlemen.

  14. The hon. Ms Dora Siliya, thank you so much for taking the time to intelligently respond to these embarrassing bloggers who, outside of relentless use of profanity , defy any logic to intelligent discourse. It is refreshing to know that you have tremendous resolve and educating these sorry illiterate degenerates what your priorities are as our minister of Agriculture are. Service to your country and the President. Your background is impressive and anybody who thinks a college graduate with field experience in journalism is nothing ,must be out of their mind! Keep up the good work and as Mrs Obama said, when they go low, you go hi Dora!

  15. BaDoYO,
    Your response to GBM is a page and half but the question about the distibuting of farming inputs was not even half a page. I think sometimes you just have to cover your mouth with tape. You don’t have to respond to every attack. You look like you were a noise maker in class too. Working as a minister is not your thing. If we have to put ministers in groups, you are in group 3.

  16. Hon. Ms. Siliya,

    We want to hear something creative and productive and not this nonsenses from a minister like you Madam, if you don’t have, then better keep quiet and go to the kitchen and do something for yr internal boss! bye!!!

  17. iwe weule ka dora GBM was just advising you or he was just alerting you to pull up your socks otherwise there is nothing you are doing in that ministry even muliokela can do better than you *****!

  18. It really confounds some of us why there seemingly pervasive culture of hatred, disrespect and degradation of women. All that is spewed is degradatory gender profanity. Since when did Zambia become a nation of questionable morals? Our intellectual articulation as well seems to be morbid if not altogether absent. Analysing the daily contents in this paper reveals a systematic attack of horrifying scale on female leaders. Professionals will tell you that this represents a deep seated inadequacy in the core of the perpetrators. A cry for attention if you will. INSULTING WOMEN WILL NOT HEAL YOU! Let me also note that there is a saying to let sleeping dogs lie. You do not ever see or read women bloggers dissecting male anatomical analogies or actualities. Beware, women can be extremely vicious…
