Former Transport and Communications Minister Dora Siliya has announced intentions to re-contest the Petauke Parliamentary seat following a Supreme Court ruling that overturned the decision by the Electoral Commission of Zambia to block her nomination.
And Siliya has harshly criticised the Patriotic Front’s governance record in the 3 yrs of latePresident Sata’s tenure.
The former MMD Spokesperson said never before in her adult life has she witnessed an infringement on civil liberties as what transpired between 2011 through to 2014.
“Never before, at least in my adult life, have I seen citizens liberties infringed upon as in the last 3 years. the Panga carrying xenophobic attackers in South Africa shock us, but I believe they also remind us of the path our country almost took, with Panga carrying cadres on the streets of Lusaka and in various by- elections.” Siliya said before a packed press briefing in Lusaka this morning
Silliya is preparing to recontest her seat but under the PF of Rupiah Banda and Edgar Lungu.
