The opposition UPND has strongly condemned Information and Broadcasting Minister Dora Siliya for handing over offals to poor villagers in Eastern Province.

UPND Chairperson for Agriculture Levy Ngoma said Ms. Siliya who is also Petauke Central Member of Parliament is handing out offals to the poor women of Eastern Province, instead of handing them heifers to raise their own animals.

Mr. Ngoma said this must be condemned by all well-meaning Zambians, especially the women movement for the humiliating and degrading manner in which Ms. Siliya is treating her fellow women.

“Under Dora’s watch, the e-voucher system has been a disaster. The procurement of maize has been in shambles. Agriculture financing has been in a crisis. Then as if to add salt to injury, Dora finds it wise to distribute left overs to an already desperate people. Just who ate the rump steak from those same animals?”

Mr Ngoma added, “PF thrives in populism. But on this one they have got it all wrong. They are impoverishing the people to later hand over offals to them. How sustainable is this policy? What we would have wanted Dora to do was to simply handout starter packs to the people so that they can produce their own food instead of giving them offals that will only last one day and then they start begging again. Dora must apologise to the nation for that humiliating treatment.”

    • What an insult to women. Offals is associated to feed lowest in society and dogs. American Slaves were fed on offals, up to now, most white people cant eat offals.

    • Kapyongo was just presenting in parliament about cooked “human offals” sent for forensic tests.
      Dora makes it a mockery to go feed villagers on offals. Should we ask her if they are even tested?
      Where are those women like Godfrida Sumaili and that Gender Minister allowing Dora go about disgracing us the poor?

    • She can afford to take foreigners (Mulabana & his namibian ex-GF) to LAS VEGAS but only give Chief & ma-tumbo to the villagers who voted for her.

      What a shame-less buffoon!!

  2. Bwana Ngoma just wanting to be heard – so, every time she meets her constituents she should carry cows, goats and pigs to dish out? She can’t go in her constituency and have a light moment? This nonsense of always looking for an opportunity to criticize government officials and think that that is what is called “opposition” makes a big joke of our opposition politicians.

    • When you have your own heifers you are going to as my many michopos, vimbombos, matumbos…etc as you like. That’s what brother Ngoma is saying. Keep eating Koswe mu mpoto that’s not a problem.

  3. A dismal failure at Agriculture promoted to information to speak for state corruption! This is the utter pits! Those who laid down their lives to liberate this country must turn in their graves that a regime as inept and corrupt as this should lead this country. This cabal of daylight thieves should never have been allowed to run this country. They came not to serve the nation, but to plunder national resources.

  4. Personally I enjoy offals better than steaks. I don’t see why Upnd should be upset with someone who at least has remembered our less fortunate brothers and sisters.

    • Let’s not pretend. Most Zambians eat hooves or ifimbombo, imichopo and other types of meats. A Zambia would rather be seen eating snails because a Whiteman is eating them. It’s this ukuichaila that has added to our misery. If you didn’t have this false pride by now delicacies like ivinkubala would have gone international.

  6. What is wrong with offals?
    Is the UPND saying offals are the worst part of beef meat?

    It is actually UPND degrading those of us who like offals especially “chief”.
    Since when did the UPND become a catering organization to determine what is good for us?
    Is that what u call opposition?
    Why don’t you UPND chaps focus on marketing yo infant agro policies ?

  7. UPND has gone to the d0gs. Are offals not relish for people to eat? How does this guy called Ngoma confuse heifers with offals? Truly UPND is full of Under 5s and surprisingly so, the dont grow up.

  9. I don’t understand Ngoma’s stand. Firstly, is the offal being provided by way of welfare? Are families being given a meal handout loin the recession?

    As for Offal being an insult…that’s ludicrous. Here in the West Offal is a delicacy and sold by Celebrity chefs. A famous restaurant here in London called St John’s, specialises in what is called ‘Head to Tail’ cuisine, where everything including the hooves are plated!

    Nothing wrong with Offal. If you watch a food show by Zimmerman of strange food, on Food Network you will note what is considered delicacies among the educated elite.

    • Goggle……. Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World of Food and Andrew Zimmern’s Field Guide to Exceptionally Weird, Wild & Wonderful Foods. The Bizarre Truth.

      Food sources are expanding to include all kinds of insects. I think offal is better than Zambia’s favourite insect delicacy of ‘Inswa'( pardon sp).

  10. There is a certain place in Zambia where offals & hooves are not eaten by people but left for dogs. Am sure that’s where Dora got those truck loads of offals

  11. UPND should not politicise everything. Dora is Catholic and Catholics are now observing Lent. Lent is about giving to the poor whatever you can afford. There is nothing wrong with what Dora is doing. Levy, when you were MP how many people did you feed or give heifers??

  13. To some people egoism is in their blood no matter how much wealth they will accumulate. The woman in question can’t even emulate Minister Joe Malanji who recently donated sanitation accessories to CBU which made a drastic speed in replacing worn out ones.
    This Minister is greed no wonder why she didn’t hear the cries of the poor farmers during the planting season, instead of activating the e-vouchers a month before planting season she did the opposed the activation process started in the midst of the rain season, some of our poor farmers are still in doldrums because of the same Minister. Our Head of state did well to replace her, she is better off under the Ministry of vocabulary than the men’s Ministry which requires someone with practical approach Like the New Minister who is ever…

  14. If she gave them cows they were going to say where did she get money to buy cows and give them to villagers for free. Upnd has never appreciated anything that pf does. Iam not surprised they’re that they are condemning dora for fhis.

White men eats snails and lizards and you say nothing. Dunderheads. In eastern province they would rather throw steak and eat the offals if you didnt know.

  15. Politics of populism. This is not the way to empower villagers. Anyway, it’s what politicians do best- buy chibuku or shake shake, give the poor souls K5 and ask them to vote for them. Pathetic fools!

  19. That is why GBM is saying “the problem with us upnd is we talk too much with no actions-according to today’s mast”. this Levy Ngoma with no political future is blameing Dora Siliya, must ask himself what he has done for the same poor women.does upnd know that in villages even a soap worth k2 is valued too much?WHAT DORA SILIYA IS DOING IS WHAT WINS ELECTIONS IN ZAMBIA.TALKING CHABE IS CHEAP.VILLAGERS MAKE IT OPEN,IF YOU DONT SHARE WITH THEM,THEN FORGET ABOUT THEIR VOTES!!THIS IS A HARSH REALITY FOR GREEDY UPND LEADERS!!so leave Dora Siliya alone and let her share with the poor villagers anything she can afford!!
    PLEASE PF LEADERS CONTINUE SHARING WITH THE POOR WHATEVER YOU CAN AFFORD AND LET UPND LEARDERS CONTINUE YAPPING IN VAIN!!

  21. Only morons will find fault with the Minister at every turn. Dora is a great lady first, efficient National servant who is diligent at what she does. All you losers can whine all you want, allyou end up with is a headache! Ouch! You are the same retards who cannot wait for vinkubala and inswa season. Some of you spend all summer in the dry heat to catch those annoying noisy insects with no flesh, Chenze. And yes you also salivate for frogs cos white people consider them a Delicacy called escargo.Dora always beats you to the punch. I hope i eat her cooking some day!

  22. That is why I lose interest in reading a news article soon as I see upndeez anywhere bear it. Can you imagine this becomes a topic of discussion for the whole Upndeez Chairperson of Agriculture or shadow minister of agriculture as they say in UK. Just wants to be “heard” as per upndeez tradition, pathetic really, ati opposition!

  23. Personally I love offals over T bone or any steak. I buy mince meat or sausage for my servant for his lunch but he is not allowed to touch my offals!!, I probably would suspend him if he did that.

    But hey did you know that this pathetic ” shadow minister” Levy Ngoma was only dramatising Dora’s donation of food to her constituents? He was not even there. I read the report in the newspapers and that is what Levy Ngoma upndeez read too. The story headlined “Dora feeds her constituents”, nowhere does it mention beans, mealie meal, beef, sausage, or even my favourite dish, the now famous offals!
    Pathetic upndeez, they have hit their heads against a brick wall yet again, yes typical of the party that is going nowhere!

  24. In fact it is most likely that Dora donated cows for slaughter. Just think about it logically, each cow has only a limited amount of offals, even in the butcheries offals are readily available, where would you get a large quantity required to feed hundreds if not thousands of villagers? Upndeez should know that better coming from tge cowbelt in Namwala. Oh sorry, forgive him for the costly fu.ck up, Levy Ngoma is from eastern, a rat eater according to h.h in an unguarded but now infamous and costly ins.ult on the head of ECZ.
