Insulting the President or Dora Siliya does not benefit anyone, Information Minister tells the Youths

Headlines Insulting the President or Dora Siliya does not benefit anyone, Information...

Minister of Information Hon Dora Siliya has continued to hold youth engagement meetings with youths assuring them that the government is in total support of freedoms of expression to create a discourse with them in order to understand their challenges and seek solutions.

Ms. Siliya during a meeting with various youths at her office Tuesday morning, said youths are an integral part of the government’s agenda to develop the country as they constitute the majority of the population.

About 10 youths among them entrepreneurs, graduate students, and business persons presented their suggestions, arguments as well as proposals on how government can improve their welfare with some urging their fellow youths to understand various procedures for them to fully participate and engage government on matters that concern them.

In response, Ms Siliya expressed happiness with the level of zeal and determination from the youths and said all their proposals have been taken note of and assured of appropriate action and responses to all the concerns raised.

“Some of your arguments you have brought here are very unbelievable, I would love to open the internet and find out that this is the discourse young people are engaging in and bringing suggestions on what government should do instead of insulting the President or Dora Siliya because that does not benefit anyone,” Ms. Siliya said.

She said President Edgar Lungu is very alive to various proposals coming from the youths and disclosed that an inter Ministerial meeting will soon be held to see how various linkages concerning youth empowerment can be integrated into various ministries.

She noted all the recommendations such as creating financial assistance, entrepreneurship linkages among government and the private sector, safeguarding local jobs among others adding that all recommendations will be put into consideration to ensure that youths are assisted in every way possible.

Ms. Siliya reiterated the need for youths to also be positive and take advantage of various opportunities and challenges facing them and look at them as “the glass being half full as opposed to half-empty”

  1. “…She noted all the recommendations such as creating financial assistance, entrepreneurship linkages among government and the private sector, safeguarding local jobs among others adding that all recommendations will be put into consideration to ensure that youths are assisted in every way possible…”

    If you were not already doing those common sense things already , you are not worthy being a government….

  2. Where is the ministry of youth & sports. Where is the ministry of commerce and industry? Where is the ministry of higher education? Or arts and culture? These ate the ministries that answer to the youths’ needs. But to have ministry of information & Broadcasting or sorry I meant to say ministry of PF propaganda as champion of the youth problems shows a lack of seriousness/ ulterior motives

    • @Bashi Chite all those ministries you have mentioned are necessary for progress but two ministries that are irrelevant are Information & Broadcasting and Religious Affairs. Imagine a ministry of information with a Permanent Secretary, deputy and plenty of other support staff. What do they do? If the government was producing films and publications they could have an excuse but it doesn’t. Even then a department would produce this without the need for a Minister and accompanying staff. Same with Religious Affairs.
      The only place where such ministries would be relevant is Saudi Arabia. Perhaps the Chinese and the North Koreans have an Information Ministry but ask yourself why Britain, France Germany Japan US don’t have such money drainers.

  3. Stating that you received a $3 million bribe to sell Zamtel and deposited the money into your son’s account in SA is not insulting.
    Stating that Lungu and his daughter owns the 48 houses is not insulting.
    If you feel insulted why are you not taking anyone to Court.
    Exposing corruption is not insulting. There’s no smoke without fire.

  4. When you don’t listen to the people who put you in power then they are left with no choice but to insult you because that is the only way they can vent their frustration.

  6. Very wise words. It’s in our culture to respect elders even where you differ. The majority of youth are respectful. However, we have a small group of those that are being funded by opposition to behave in an appalling way like the sadist diasporans. The diasporans who do this have lost their culture and insult us zambian every day. This is out of frustration because they get abuse there abroad every day due to the colour of their skins. However no one forced them to seek asylum there. Kz

  8. Kaizer Zulu is talking about respect Hahahaha the man went to Bauleni and set on fire peoples houses, what if there was a baby sleeping in that thatched house. You beat a Minibus driver with young children in the Bus. Your boss reassigned you from your Advisor job because you were embarrassing him with your behavior and you going to talk about people not having respect?

  9. Safeguarding local jobs, Youth Internships in all Govt Ministries. The best route is Entrepreneurial funding assistance because worldwide, no one is guaranteed a job for life. Above all Youths must be ready to get dirty even in Agri business instead of looking for fantasy jobs.

    Parents must also have a change of mindset. They have a duty to family plan in a way they can save to set up their children or at least support them.

  13. Why is it that PF still wants to understand what the youths go through haven’t they had a clue by now? The sufferings of the People in Zambia is like general knowledge which is everywhere caused by the PF.

  15. Dear Dora PF with Micheal Sata invented insulting the president lets be honest your party come into power by calling people names like cabbage. I would suggest you apologise to past president for PF insults. In fact apologise for your insults in parliament.

  16. Too little too late. Zambian Youth, don’t let this clueless corrupt PF administration fool you. They just realized how much voting power you wield and are trying to foool you into thinking they care about you. They don’t. They just want votes from you next year, And if you vote for them next year, you’ll never hear from them again. They don’t care about you. They had close to 10 years to create opportunities for the Zambian youth, which they’ve not. What are they going to do for you in the remaining few months, which they haven’t done in the past 10 years? Don’t let them fool you. They’ve already stolen your future. Get whatever they give you now, but vote against them next year. Once they lose the election, they’ll get arrested so we can retrieve the national resources that…

  17. …these PF have stolen. So basically you’re talking to future convicts, as all these PF cr1minals will be going to prison next year.

  18. I believe you madam.You are so correct.But it is your government that retired in national and public interests so many people,some of them very young.Those who were retiring the young are elderly and on contracts.

  19. I do not like Dora and her corrupt DNA but she deserves respect and no woman should be insulted the way she was insulted by Chellah

  20. IWE,CHI KZ DON’T TRY AND MOCK PEOPLE.ABENA MASON THE GUYS YOU BEAT IN KAFUE HAVE BEEN SENDING SUMMONS AND U DON’T RESPOND TO ANY OF THEM.THIS IS JUST ONE INCIDENT. DON’T THINK THAT THE LAW WON’T CATCH U.IT WILL BE SORRY .REMEMBER,DURING THE UNDER 20 AFRICA CUP WHERE U SLAPPED A COP. ALL OF THOSE ARE STILL FRESH IN OUR HEARTS AND ALL THE CRIMES U HAVE BEEN COMMITTING. WE ARE WAITING TO MAKE U ACCOUNT.REMEMBER WHAT U DID IN MIKANGO BARACKS. U ARE NOT EVEN ASHAMED OF YOURSELF. MAYO SILIYA GO AND TELL THOSE STUPID LIES TO YOUR BULULUS NOT US THE ZAMBIANS.REMEMBER THE CRIMES YOU HAVE COMMMITTED TO THE ZAMBIANS.U THINK WE ARE QUIET?TULEISA AND YOU WILL PAY FOR ALL OF THOSE.

  21. THEY HAVE BEEN USING HAIMBE WHOSE IS THE LAWYER REPRESENTING THEM.EVEN,IF U CALL US HYNAS WE AHVE RESPECT FOR HUMAN.U,WERE NOT TAUGHT OR YOUR UP BRING WAS NOT PROPERLY DONE.I BLAME YOUR PARENTS FOR THAT.FLYING TO PARIS LATER.

  22. Lacan considered insults a primary form of social interaction, central to the imaginary order – “a situation that is symbolized in the ‘Yah-boo, so are you’ of the transitivist quarrel, the original form of aggressive communication”, this is a way in which a person or persons vent their anger without being physical and it restores their lost energy as a result of the source of anger being rebuked. in later years it was felt that though it released the bad energy it actually offended the person to whom it was directed, who could have directly or indirectly, knowingly or unknowingly invited the insult etc etc I am still researching.

  23. KZ if you are looking for the reasons why you are not in prison right now. We will help you understand .The reason is similar to the Chavula issue . Chavula the so called computer expert is not in jail up to now because he is enjoying a steel wall protection from your corrupt government .The other reason is similar to the fact that sponsored thugs who travelled all the way from Lusaka to intimidate and threaten Kambwili in Luanshya haven’t been arrested by the corrupt police command . Some corrupt minister is cringing on to his job busy destroying the evidence that could be used against him by ACC.

  24. Dora is solid bone from head to toe, you cannot get any thicker than that mentally. If I was there I would have asked her to explain exactly what she meant by “create a discourse with them in order to understand their challenges and seek solutions?” She is clueless that girl, what a waste of space, no wonder things in Zambia are only getting from bad to worse.

  25. If Dora doesn’t understand the problems the youths are facing then she is not worth to hold that office she is getting bus loads of tax payers cash for . We will help her understand using bullet proof points :
    1 Poverty
    2 Unemployment
    3 Corruption
    4 Poor health standards resulting in preventable deaths………
    The list is as long as my arm .

  26. KZ kale ayamba, in 2016 Kaizer Zulu’s girlfriends Lulu Sonita Zulu has committed suicide after he beat her up …
    2015 State House gunman and Special Assistant to the president for corruption Kaizer Zulu, with the full knowledge of clueless Edgar Lungu ordered the raid on the residence of the nephew to Chongwe member of Parliament Sylvia Masebo fearing that the opposition lawmaker is gaining much support in her constituency which will enable the UPND secure victory in next year’s elections.
    Sources at State House said that the raid which occurred a couple of weeks ago was not even known to the state police but PF cadres in police offices and some seconded to the “fake” intelligence.
