Dora Siliya found wanting in the Malawi Parliamentary report over Maizegate

Headlines Dora Siliya found wanting in the Malawi Parliamentary report over Maizegate

The Malawian Joint Committee of Parliament tasked to probe the Maize scandal has revealed that Zambia’s Agriculture Minister Dora Siliya flouted legal procedures when she instructed her Permanent Secretary to issue a Maize export permit of 50,000 metric tonnes to Transglobe Export Produce Ltd when the firm did not legally qualify.

The Committee which tabled its report on Wednesday in the National Assembly stated that Transglobe did not qualify for an export permit because it was not a registered tax payer in Zambia.

The Committee further found that Transglobe wrongly and fraudulently involved the Malawian Minister of Agriculture Dr. George Chaponda to get it business so that it could supply up to 50, 000 metric tonnes to Malawi.

It said that in this wrongful activity, Dr. Chaponda was aided by Ms. Siliya who instructed her Permanent Secretary to issue Transglobe with a maize export permit illegally.

The Committee has since recommended that Malawi President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika should publicly censures Dr. George Chaponda for his wrongful and illegal involvement in the procurement of the maize from Zambia so as to benefit Transglobe.

It said the Malawi Police Service and the Anti-Corruption Bureau should investigate Dr. Chaponda for possible misuse or abuse of public office.

The Committee also recommended that that the Director of Public Prosecutions should seriously consider bringing charges perjury against officers who had lied under oath when they testified to the Committee.

    • No surprise on this one. Since she is in cahoots with the powers that be (did some one say Vodiga Rungu and Ala Bee??), this is going nowhere.

      NEXT !!!

    • this should trigger an internal investigation by ACC in Zambia. how many times is the banda group going to get away with stealing from zambians?

    • Malawians are talking from their backside.

      Can we all stick for Dora. Our country is under attack people.

      You and I both know, Dora is innocent.

      To hell with people finding Dora wanting. Dora like Lungu must be exonerated.

      This is UPND conniving with Malawians.

      Wake up

      Thanks

    • Bandit Dora needs to be fired immediately or resign for her corruption & gross misconduct in fraudulent activities.
      But of course, visionless Lungu won’t dismiss Dora Siliti simply b’coz bandits steal together.
      Such a shame to have bandits like Siliti to be cabinet ministers.
      The inept ACC & PFolice have no stamina & are scared of blind Lungu. Shame PF!

    • One of the marks of a good leader is ability to appoint a competent team. It just shows how incompetent our president is.

    • This issue was brought to light by Saviour Chishimba, a zambian. Our authorities should have moved quickly to protect zambian & the integrity of the country by investigating the allegations. One person shouldn’t have led to this wholesale embarrassment of a nation. Now the whole world knows our president to be a small time thief.

    • Dora is only good at 2 things and both start with S! This leopard cannot and will not change its spots. @nono you still have faith in ACC? This acts have the full blessings of RB (the real president) and his vice ECL

    • At least Malawi still has a government and a parliament. A report of a joint committed is released. Never heard of such a thing in Zambia. Everything is thrown away and sat on.

    • This is laughable.

      How does Malawi send people who are not legally mandated based on their law, to come to Zambia to skk for a permit from Zambian govt.

      Honestly, they expected Dora to go to Malawi and read their law, and contest that the people they have sent to Zambia have not been given mandate by the Malawian law?

      Common sense will laigh in this matter, if Mutarika sends a representative to Dora, is it Dora’s duty to go to Malawi and read Malawian law and challenge Mutarika regarding the eligibility of his representative?

      Sometimes we wonder why birds increase their noise in the trees at certain times; it is because even they are equally busy laughing at certain behaviours of people.

    • And the author of this story openly avoided application of logic.

      This is very clear that the said article does not add up.

      If the author did not do it on purpose to decieve the people who are logic-shy then the author’s logic is wanting

    • And think a moment,

      Who told them that the said zambian company is not compliant.

      And two, why is the issue about non-tax compliance, and not about the moneys they lost in Malawi?

      The Malawian government has a choice who to buy maize from.

      The Post Newspaper was operating without tax for years.

      Was it Dora who facilitated their business

    • Why did the Malawian government carryout such big transaction as if they were buying catapilas from the market.

      Don’t they have tender procedures? What happened to their evaluation process?

      Their minister was their own representative, he was not chosen by Dora.

    • Ba Peace For Zambia you have missed the point here.. maybe it’s good to read the article again or I don’t know whether u have been following this news..

    • Lombe you are irritating. Which election did Lungu steal? Do you think that only your vote counts? I proudly voted for Lungu and can’t stand chaps like you who can’t take defeat like a man. Let HH take lessons from RB and KK

  1. And these PF chaps were as usual refusing that there was no wrong doing. Even with this clear report,they will continue refusing, what type of people are these?

  2. And these PF ministers, with unemployment levels among the youth being the biggest challenge, the minister of youth does not know how many jobs have been created so far. ZNBC Sunday interview was a complete disaster. A minister of youth should track these numbers monthly and should be able to see if something is happening on the ground. Truth be told, there is no hope for the youth

    • Dora Musuma. Amolu, Ishiwi, Imyendele, Amenso, ETC. Kwena mwandi you are a beauty. I hope you have nothing to do with all this young girl.

  3. You guys MUST read the report to appreciate the quality of writing in Malawi. These guys are years ahead of Zambia in writing for the decision makers in the country and its citizens. Has anybody read a report written by our ACC? I would suggest that we disband all of our investigative wings and hire experts from Scotland Yard, Botswana, South Africa and Canada to clean up Zambia’s rotten systems.

    • Zambia is a third rate country and will not improve under the majority thieving filaisova culture. To these thieves even writing a proper report in English is an affront because it is not in Bemba.

    • Chi back teeth, I know you are a retard Lozi, with big pointed yellow scattered teeth, with a very peculiar small black face like that of a Somalian- typical of terrorist features. You are nothing but a lousy Baroste terrorist full of hatred for a specific tribe. By the way, keep on vindicating Bembas, at least they have a country, unlike your small terrorist tribe which has no state, no taste, no King, no direction. In fact South Africans and Namibians call you Makwerekwere- they hate you big time because of your peculiar body features and your terrorist ideology. Only Somalis can relate well with you.
      Waba muchinwa kwati ni inshinshi yakwa shetani.

    • Please let is not avoid logic. This is very laughable.

      How does Malawi send people who are not legally mandated based on their law, to come to Zambia to skk for a permit from Zambian govt.

      Honestly, they expected Dora to go to Malawi and read their law, and contest that the people they have sent to Zambia have not been given mandate by the Malawian law?

      Sometimes we wonder why birds increase their noise in the trees at certain times; it is because even they are equally busy laughing at certain behaviours of people.

    • If the team from Malawi was illegitimate, whose problem was it, Dora?

      Who appointed that team from Malawi to get permit from Zambia?

      Did Dora go to Malawi to assemble that team?

      And if that was Dora’s team then why did Malawian government pay them the money they are crying about?

      Is it Dora who acted as minister of Malawian finance and authorised that payment on behalf of Malawian government?

      I think that most of the bloggers here comment before they even think; I am giving them a benefit of doubt, that they, in fact, do think afterwards.

    • Cyberbully you’ve a very sick imagination. Since when did South Africans and Namibians hate Lozis and called them Makwerekwere? How can Lozis be Makwerekwere when Silozi is related to some languages in these countries? If anything Silozi has no relationship with Zambian languages but is more related to the languages spoken in countries to the south of Zambia. SABC broadcasts in Silozi. It does not broadcast in Bemba or Somali. And the last time I checked Lozis live in their own part of the country they call home or hae.

  4. DORA SILIYA was not cleared over flouting tender procedures during the tender for procurement of the $10Million Radar for the LSK int’l Airport. Actually she got rewarded by being appointed minister. Old habits die hard.

    LUNGU/RB can’t fire DORA, a wako-ni-wako. They have time to crook Malawi, time for S_excapades to Las-Vegas, time to steal other peoples conmen husbands BUT have no time to deliver farming inputs, fight army worms, anthrax, stalk borer & soon to come grain borer.

    The independent media needs to did who the real owners of Transglobe are. I won’t be surprised if it belongs to her Kasai BEN-10, Mulabana or one of LUNGU’s stooge. Maybe thats REAL why they are busy shutting down Post/Mast, so that we only watch the DeadNBC version of their looting scandals…

    • Maloza you’re right & in fact it was $25million which bandit Dora Siliti was involved.
      Visionless Lungu won’t do anything~they are friends in corruption & crime.
      The Skeleton Key
      ~206~

    • @ Maloza. It would seem she gets appointed to ministries with big contracts for one reason:

      – Ministry of communication:- For corrupt deals with tele-companies & airport deals
      – Ministry of Energy (specially created for her after lungu broke up Ministry of mines & energy) :- for corrupt deals in procurement of Crude Oil
      – Ministry of Agriculture:- for corrupt deals in procurement of fertilizer & maize marketing

      That’s how she’s managed to buy several properties in Midstream Estate in Johannesburg
      wwwDOTproperty24DOTcom/for-sale/midstream-estate/centurion/gauteng/12774

    • The hole between her legs is not only for Mulabana but for Edward too, is used to be for Rupiah before and it keeps her Job as a minister.

  5. What did you expect from this woman with the terrible record from MMD days over procurement of airport radar. Only a corrupt & uncaring government can be comfortable appointing such an individual to such a key post.

  6. Ba Dora Bena! Awe mwandini. Always in Scandals they keep on appointing her in Ministerial Positions. Shame, Shame? Shame. Chi shameneni Icho!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. President Lungu should fire Dora immediately we know she is innocent until proved guilty same way Chishimba Kambwli was fired on allegations. No action on Siliya would be perceived as wako ni wako at play. No silence Mr President I’m sure you have been informed about madam Dora.

  8. The report was written by Malawians investigators. Y should u rush to calling for Dora firing before u carry out your own investigations? Dora can not be fired based on Malawi report..! Wonder how Zambians will always trust outside systems but busy shooting down their own systems….inferiority complex at play..!

    • What do you want the masses to belive ? Lungu won’t authorise any investigations on the zambian side.

      That is why he is busy 24/7 trying to shutdown the Mast to keep zambians ignorant.

  9. Dora Siliya is proof that politicians are just like bananas – they hang together ,they change colour and they’re all crooked…and eventually get rotten.

  10. What did Dolly do wrong? Did she pocket the money? Is there evidence of being bribed? Malawi was conned by a briefcase bussinessman full stop. Dora and Zambia did nothing wrong.

  11. If lungu had any credibility in him he would have authorised investigations on the zambian side to show he is against corruption , but instead he spends his time 24/7 fighting to mast to keep zambians ignorant.

    • The ROT starts from the HEAD!!
      Dora knows she’s untouchable, that’s why she behaves like this.

      – She can even raise the MIDDLE FINGER in parliament without any recourse.

      Maybe she holds alot of LUNGU’s & RB’s secrets, maybe some bedroom secrets according to the rumours.

      The caliber of PF00Lish Regime leaves much to be desired!

    • Lungu’s middle name is “CORRUPTION”
      Have you Zambians got no memory all??
      EMBEZZLEMENT OF A CLIENTS MONEY, LEADING TO REVOCATION OF LAWYERS LICENSE!!
      Surely that was NOT 3 Centuries ago.

  12. When nez says that that the entire pf are corrupt rats I am called names by dull cadres here like that village pig ndanje. Very embarrassing

  13. I note that progressive African Governments are being attacked some hired capitalist agents to sow confusion in Africa. The Donald Trump era has infiltrated some unpatriotic non-progressive elements in Africa. Imagine such elements having been embedded in some South African Trade Unionists (i.e. NUMSA) that supports plunderers. Yet this South African NUMSA could have consulted Zambian colleagues before raising wild accusations to Zambian Govt on issues linked to The Post Newspaper.

    Let us hope that the Malawian Government will backed up by historical and wise-visioned, well-researched data base to respond to the emotional Malawian Joint Committee of Parliament. Zambia and Malawi shall co-exist for ever.

    • Ati ” ……being attacked some hired capitalist agents to sow confusion in Africa….”

      Childish ignorant african. No shame whatsoever ever.
      The same agents you go crawling to with your tail between your legs for aid and loans to cover your looting and mismanagement.

      Lungu has been publicly linked to this scandal. Not once has this fraud convict come on air to reassure zambians.

  14. This just proves our ACC is a sham..utter waste of taxpayers money only there to chase after poor people.
    We know Lazy will stand on an airport tarmac and defend another of RBs people.

    • DORA WILL GET PROMOTED FOR THIS AS IT IS A VERY HONARABLE THING IN P F TO STEAL AND GET CAUGHT. PROBABLY GOGO WILL BE RETIRED AS VICE AND SHE WILL TAKE OVER.

  15. One thing that really astounds is the monkeys on these forums who attack the west for percived plots against your poor aids and corruption riddled country.

    The same monkeys that say nothing when the west is throwing handouts to them like dogs and yet they go dancing and praying all day when lungu asks them while stealing.

    If you don’t want the west to have any say in your affaires don’t beg for their money. Manage your own resources properly.

  16. What say so President you Lungu? There it is in black and white, your minister involved in corruption. Your counterpart in Malawi has suspended his minister, what say you ECL!!!!

  17. Stealing starts from your own home before you go to steal from other people. Flouting of tender/procurement procedures is the order of the day in Zambia and now has been extended to other countries; shame on Zambia. The police are busy chasing after The Mast leaving Dora and Lungu who are involved in millions of dollar scandal. I am ashamed to be Zambian especially under this administration.

  18. Hooray for Saviour Chishimba. He fought this fight and has been vindicated. People attacked him and now what have they got to say to him. President Lungu also defended this deal and now he has egg on his face.

  19. Now where are those PF goons who were saying that Siliya and team were not involved? Shameless nitwits together with their visionless one. The Malawans seem to have their house in order in as far as upholding and fighting corruption is concerned, where as we are in the forefront of promoting it. Our colleges have done a dull diligence test, carried out investigations and presented the report to Parliament for perusal and possible adoption. Ours is business as usual. Sometimes you tend to wonder as to what curse has befallen this country that we can not even deal with straight forward issues. PF caught pants down on this one, what an embarrassment of epic proportions.

  20. Those who attacked SAviour Chishimba are stooges of RB and Lungu who paid them to intimidate those who can speak openly against the corruption of RB, Lungu and Dora. And honestly RB was the most corrupt president Zambia had ever seen and he is the chief adviser of Lungu, what do you expect. A Bemba saying goes ‘ Uwa kalema takaleka’ or ‘impute isula taileka’. So RB cannot stop his evil ways. Infact he has advised Lungu ati ‘ mwaice its time for you to make money so listen to me’. And Lungu has just been obeying

  21. Perhpas you should read the whole report before you make the comments. Besides, the tendering proceedure in Malawi are different from those of Zambia. If you read carefully, the report points out flaws in procuring in government and government sttutory bodies like ADMARC. The did not find anything about overpricing the cost of buying maize from Zambia with Kaloswe, but there were problems with how the Malawian minister identified Kaloswe, and later Transglobe in the deal — tendering procedures were abused and aborted. For instance, ADMARC did not use and inform the Attoney General as required by law, nor did it use the Office of Director of Public Procurement, and follow the procurement procedure.

    The agriculture ministry in Zambia and the president were only involved to lift the…

  22. When you are sent to get fire from the neighbor’s brazier to light your own and you use your bare hands and get burnt, could you put the blame on the sender? The person who gives permits is not Dora but the technocrats who must ensure the whole procedure is followed to its logical end. Do you have a choice when it is clearly stated that “use black ink”? In this case is registration and TPIN not a necessity when it comes to conducting such business?

  23. Dora has always been a big thief. First she stole some sperms from Mrs Kuluneta by having unprotected sex with the late Joseph Kuluneta and allowing him to deposit some seeds into her which ideally should have ended up with Mrs Kuluneta. You know the product of this thievery. She then stole her way into UNZA and completed through stealing marks by using bottom power (icinena). She then stole money meant for some radar at the airport in Lusaka. I am told she has now stolen a husband from some unfortunate girl in one neighbouring country. the latest is the amataba in the Malawi Maizegate scandal. Amai banda (former first lady) has other details. If you are arguing go and ask Chisha Folotia.

  24. To those calling for Lungu to fire Dora, my question is; how do you discipline your own child based on what your neighbors think of your child? When Dora gave a directive for the permit, did you expect her to follow through and ensure that Transglobe was a registered tax payer in Zambia? Whats the use of the Technocrats that we have in the Ministry???

  25. Just work on Quality Malawian Report and fire $ Slit. Which investigation wing can carry out an investigation in Zed? Because they will have answer before investigating. Then no feed back..dead silent on yhr issue. Wait u ll see. Malawian Government ll act yet Vodka ll be quiet. Til or forgotten. Life goes on on PF. Aaaah $ Slit Skirt kaya banamupanga bwanji. No remorse No regretted, No nsoni….

  26. You Malawians is this what you are paying us when you were at the verge of dying from hunger. It is you who were desperate to find food for your people, you came begging when you sent your Min. of Agric. here and when we tried to help you you are shifting the blame to us. Leave Dora alone, Dora acted in good faith now you are tarnishing her name.

  27. Here we go,Dora Siliya at it again!First it was the infamous acquisition of the radar equipment under the RB admin.(How far has that case gone)? Now it is this maize-gate scandal,will it also die another “natural” death?

  28. After Stealing from you poor Zambians Bandit (Dora the [email protected] Explorer) uses the same cash to go to the U.S, to pay Mike Tyson to squeeze her so called “Sofiti [email protected]
    ONLY IN ZAMBIA. Come election time, dopey Zambians will wake up early to go & vote these parasites back into office

  29. Dora is so sweet. Both Edgar and RB are so scared to offload her because they are worried about losing access to her center pivot. Nature will attend to her very soon. Her day of reckoning will come. All rubbish said Dora is not the problem, it’s a whole broken down system. This all process was given a go ahead in ink by technocrats without paying attention to the legal requirements. There is a new phenomen among top government technocrats where everything is the minister said. There is no reference to government policy and the laws of the land. The guiding principles of governance have been trashed. Unfortunate.

  30. As long as the buyer paid taxes inrerms of VAT or export taxes can qualify. Who can refuse money anyway? The report is not right!!

  31. Dora flouted legal procedures.. Why am I not surprised? Becuase its not the first time she’s done so. If its Kambwili he would have been dropped

  32. This is laughable.

    How does Malawi send people who are not legally mandated based on their law, to come to Zambia to skk for a permit from Zambian govt.

    Honestly, they expected Dora to go to Malawi and read their law, and contest that the people they have sent to Zambia have not been given mandate by the Malawian law?

    Common sense will laigh in this matter, if Mutarika sends a representative to Dora, is it Dora’s duty to go to Malawi and read Malawian law and challenge Mutarika regarding the eligibility of his representative?

    Sometimes we wonder why birds increase their noise in the trees at certain times; it is because even they are equally busy laughing at certain behaviours of people.

    • If the team from Malawi was illegitimate, whose problem was it, Dora?

      Who appointed that team from Malawi to get permit from Zambia?

      Did Dora go to Malawi to assemble that team?

      And if that was Dora’s team then why did Malawian government pay them the money they are crying about?

      Is it Dora who acted as minister of Malawian finance and authorised that payment on behalf of Malawian government?

      I think that most of the bloggers here comment before they even think; I am giving them a benefit of doubt, that they, in fact, do think afterwards.

  33. 2020vision as accurate as ever! Even though I’m a pro PF blogger I’m on record of singling out Dora Siliya and Felix Mutati as being wrong or rotten apples!( The archives don’t lie!) Please to the powers that be let’s get rid of this MMD rot that is infecting my beloved PF! I also advise the United Dunderheads to do the same in their camp! Get rid of MMD viruses!
    Abash MMD once and forever! That was the wish of the late Great MCS (MHSRIEP) send them packing into political retirement!

  34. Anti corruption commission is toothless on this matter because the minister dora siliya happens to be sucking RB balls and he is connected to drunkard master,

  35. Chimbwi ni Chimbwi. Dora and Chakolwa ni phoni na sim card. Dora was sweet banana to Ndalama Banda now she is a sweet bokosi for Chakolwa Lungu. Both of them ni ba Nyandule. The bible teaches us all that the wages of sin is death. Politics have a time frame so be very careful. Wapya Lesa ni malyotola and days are numbered for Dununa reverse and all the stupid churches that supports it.

  36. This headline is misleading. I have read the report. It does not mention Dora Siliti by name but it just refers to a minister of agriculture. Most of the events happened before she was appointed agriculture minister. Some one else started this thing and it seems Siliti only got involved when she was appointed agriculture minister. The question is: why didn’t she stop it? Ala bonse ni bakabolala fwe mwe. Atase.

  37. lungu cant dora because they know the deal together lungu fears that she can spil the beans , let him try you will hear many things. pf is rotten.
