  1. This time around, there will be no evacuation to morning side clinic in South Africa. You must learn to equip your hospitals and modernize them.

    I urge all PF ministers to go voluntary testing for COVID 19.

    Meanwhile PF must go!

    We know why Dora is positive of covi-19, was spared from Lusambo’s thugs beating.

  3. You see Dora Siliya, you will soon need Prime TV to cover your isolation. In life let’s show humility to our critics. Some critics can pull you out of danger.

    PF must go!

  4. What about Edgar Lungu, he traveled to Zimbabwe, has he been tested? He must show responsibility by testing and self isolation. He must be tested and contact tracing must be started immediately from state house and his PF ministers.

    I once warned these PF ministers, this disease knows no riches or poverty. The good thing is that there will be much greater savings when these PF ministers get infected. There shall be no abroad treatments.

    PF must go!

  5. No need to worry, Dora. The fact that you’re not showing any symptoms shows that your immunity is at it’s best, so you’ll recover quickly without any treatment like so many other Zambians who haven’t even been tested.

  6. Wishing you speedy recovery.

    However, contact tracing must now be done, thoroughly.

    It will take a lot of time to trace everyone.

    They do not call you Zambia open for nothing.

  8. Zambia open you have been opening too much for even those from Covid-19 hotspots you see.
    Maybe she’s been also implicated in the health minister’s corruption scandal or even the donations she was announcing or even just to pour more fear on people so that their campaign strategy is justified,,,,,katwishi

  9. No wonder ECL changed the updates to only twice a week.
    I guess the majority of the cabinet ministers will be on quarantine.
    Please don’t cheat Zambians that most will recover from the virus. Every life must be protected.

  10. Get well soon madam! You have a queue of clients waiting for services! I wonder which one of the esteemed clients infected you! By the way you need to do another test for HIV so that they can change the medication for you because your viral load has changed now with Covid.

  16. Some people seem to find this amusing. I don’t understand how a normal person would wish a bad outcome of another person’s illness – unless they’re extremely sadistic and evil-minded. Really sad to see that some Zambians can be so consumed with such hate. This is a strange trait in Zambia.

    I suspect this hate is a product of fear and anxiety resulting from misinformation. As usual, a lot of people are just fixed on rising cases forgetting that the majority of people will recover without any particular intervention.

  17. Jokes aside. Let us take this disease seriously. This is the reason I am against the idea of opening schools in winter. We should have waited until August. What would happen to pupils that will contract the virus? How are they going to learn in isolation? By the time the virus is detected in a pupil, the whole school populace would have been infected. On a lighter note: I wish I could be quarantined with Dora to give her moral support. All I need is just two weeks .

  18. Even if Dora was positive, she wouldnt come out to tell us. This is a curny, untrustworthy woman who sleeps with vultures that are eating our country, day & night. It wud be true if it was a whistleblower, but since its directly coming from her, No! Its not true. She is hiding from someone or arrest or something…pls check the police cases leading to her & u ll find the answer. Or she wants to earn free money for 2weeks(quarantine period). But i suspect there is a huge fire cooking in the basement.

  19. Who tested her for Covid-19 and when? What was the purpose of the testing? Who else was tested and where? Was any minister tested or it was only her? Guys dont forget that these are PF crooks, they cant be trusted with anything they say or do. This is just the smoke,we need to find the fire.

  20. So all Cabinet contacts are positive tefyo? no wonder someone directed only two updates per week? Could it be that there is something hidden here? Is she also suggesting that no matter how much we follow the rules, we can still get the virus?

  25. Well my dear lady, Dora…use this time in self isolation to reflect on all the corruption you and your gang has perpetrated on the innocent Zambian people. Since you can’t fly out to South Africa for treatment, it’s a good time to listen quietly to what God wants to say to you. When you come out of this, maybe you can use this to effect some positive changes in your corrupt administration. We’ve been saying that instead of your team flying out to South Africa, Europe, India, etc, for treatment, use that money to improve our hospital facilities in our country for all the Zambians. That way, God forbid, if your condition turned worse, you would’ve confidence in the healthcare system in your own country. Wishing you well my dear Dora.

  26. Wishing you a quick recovery Dora. You’re one of the few that have come out in the open to inform the nation. Well meaning citizens will learn a thing or two from your advice. You will pull through being the strong woman that you are. Blessings to you!!

  27. Her contact tracing should lead us to Misisi and to State House. No evacuation to South Africa for her if and when she develops issues bcuz they’ve not been investing in proper medical facilities.

  28. Could this be the reason why Kaizar Zulu has suddenly disappeared? I hope he’s well though, PF officials should all go on mandatory screening. Get well Dora.

  29. Where is Tarino Orange. Please is one of us though being in the foreign land and critical of us. Let us find out what is the situation

  30. HH had recently said that all ministers should be in isolation because they pose a ridk of infecting others due to their travels and contacts with dignatories from abroad.

    The man HH is really wise and is getting wiser each day…

    My vote is with HH in 2021

  31. Get well soon Dora! We want you to live long so that you help with investigations into PF mass plunder in the near future! We’ll be putting PF to rest in 2021.
    I have come to this realization as a voter that we Zambians don’t know how to choose leaders. We choose loud mouths and ignore people who speak sense and who have clear plans for our country. Don’t empty tins make the most noise? And yet those are the things we embrace. We rejected Levy Mwanawasa by 73% of votes and yet he made Zambians rich during his time! Ako usulile … marries your mother and becomes your daddy. 2021 we want Bally1 only!

  32. Well, a quick recovery to Hon. Siliya. Wise way of publicising your CoV status and accurate measures on self quarantine. @nine chale, CoV asymptomic not really About healthy immune system, actually CoV symptoms/ conditions are progressive ( mild to severe). Thanks, SB.

  33. I wish you a quick recovery dear Sister. may the Lord God watch over you and your family…amen.

  34. Mwandini mukwasu upole . Osamvwa viliyeliye vulabiliwa na vizendende viliye mchinzi.Angotukana muntu a lwala, mwantumwe ndiye kusiluka uku lomba.
    Nyamalenga alinawe mukwasu upole nditu.

    • I disagree. Should I begin to insult you until you finally earn my respect respect? At least we should be mindful of what we post on social media. The whole world is reading these comments . What image are we portraying to outsiders?

    • My dear queen, you can insult if it is well with you.

      I don’t need to be respected by any but our leaders deserve to be ridiculed they don’t behave honorable at all.

      Infact they deserve to be beaten. They are holding public offices and if they if they don’t behave we shall remind them how go behave well.

      How many lives have been affected by her closing prime TV? More than two hundred employees are jobless because of her behavior.

      If you are related to her tell her that Madilu System is furious with you ok.

      PF must go!

  35. Fake news dolo sili is fine government just what to keep stealing donations money,they want to make people believe that this is a serious while not people don’t be fooled open your eyes pf now is a government of thieves

  36. How do we wish a person a quick recovery who is asymptomatic, i.e., showing no symptoms of the disease. We can hope the disease does not set in in 14 days but quick recovery?

  37. We pray for the quick recovery of the Hon. Dora Siliya. However it is sad to learn from other sources of social media that NDC’s Saboi Imboela displayed a sarcastic smile as she expressed doubts on Hon. Siliya having tested positive to COVID-19. Imboela further wished that Hon. Siliya gets an independent testing. Which health institution is Imboela referring to that is capable of administering parallel independent COVID-19 tests to support NDC’s SATANIC mindsets. If NDC have a thin thread of hope to contest 2021 General elections they (plus UPND) must take a hard look at faces of their children, parents and friends and reflect on best leadership destined to care for them. Imbela has exposed her genes as a WITCH (MFWITI, MULOYI, NDOSHI).
