Information and Broadcasting Services Minister, Dora Siliya, has advised young people in the creative arts in the Southern African region to work together to grow the industry.

Ms. Siliya says this is one of the ways that can help create the much needed jobs among talented young people in the region.

The Minister, who is also Chief Government Spokesperson, further appealed to young people to take advantage of every opportunity made available to them such as the talent factory academy to create jobs for themselves and their peers.

Ms. Siliya was speaking in Lusaka today when she addressed local and foreign artists after a conducted tour of the Talent Factory Academy for Southern African region situated at ZAMCOM institute.

The Academy, which is a Multi Choice initiative, is expected to be launched tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Ms. Siliya has also called upon the business sector in Zambia and the region as a whole to support the initiative by Multi Choice to grow the film industry and ensure that it contributes to economic growth in Zambia and the Southern African region as a whole.

    • Dora is the most useless, the UNZA students called her by her real name. She has no shame but that is the caliber of Edgar’s cabinet which includes Kampyongo, Kapata, Freedom Sikazwe and other worthless characters

    • Call her whatever you wish or throw mud at her, Dora has developed thick skin and she’s ambitious! She’s probably setting her sights way ahead than ordinarily can be known for the moment! I am guessing she’s got a strategy afoot towards the highest office of the land! Of the females in politics, Nawakwi not withstanding who would be Dora’s able challenger?

  3. As a leader, your performance is assessed by your subjects who may tag you as his/her ‘’ Excellency, honourable, humble, able and capable’’ leader or ‘’Mediocrity, Dishonourable, Arrogant, unable and incapable’’ leader. Usually, the honest tag is the one expressed when you are not around.
