Undoubtably, the PF will field Dora Siliya in the forthcoming Petauke central by election, defeating information minister Chishimba Kambwili who vowed that he would rather sell his soul to the devil than accepting Siliya into the PF.
And Siliya has refused to apologise for her insulting language against PF founder president late Michael Sata whose rule she described as worse than the recently witnessed xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
A PF insider has disclosed to the Zambian Watchdog that a decision has already been made by the central committee under the influence of President Edgar Lungu to adopt Siliya and that any primary process being taken is merely an academic exercise, this is another flop for Kambwili who soon after his appointment said that he does not fail in any crusade that he starts. Kambwili now says he will campaign for any candidate the PF shall adopt.
If Siliya wins she will be appointed in cabinet and possibly replace Chishimba Kambwili or Transport, communications, works and supply minister Yamfwa Mukanga. In that ministry, Siliya will have access to the many construction tenders being undertaken. Her entrance into the PF is heavily backed ny former President Rupiah Banda.
