Dora Siliya has been MP for this area for a long time, and she wants to continue being representative for this place despite doing nothing for the people here. Up to 2011, she was a minister and one of the ministers very close to the presidency. Yet, here is her legacy in photos. By the time she left government, her unemployed son had K18 billion in his account, but these hundreds of pupils do not even have a decent place to learn from.

On June 10, 2015, when PF government vice-president Inonge Wina visited this neglected and abandoned place, she told pupils not to abandon classes if they have to attain their dreams of becoming future leaders.
She said pupils should work hard so that they can also become vice-presidents like her in the future.
Wina said this at the boarding school grounds while drumming up support for Patriotic Front (PF) Parliamentary by-election candidate for Petauke Dora Siliya.

“Education is very important and I want you to study hard, not to abandon class, and as for you girls, we want you to complete school not be married off,” she saiIMG_2866d that it is possible for pupils to become presidents and vice-presidents if they focus on education.IMG_2867 IMG_2869 IMG_2870 IMG_2871
