Siliya Demands Apology from News Diggers over ‘Stupid’ Remark


Chief Government Spokesperson Dora Siliya has told News Diggers to apologise to the youths of Zambia for calling them “stupid” in an editorial comment published in their Friday edition. Ms Siliya, the information and broadcasting services minister, has said News Diggers should respect freedom of the youth of Zambia and their choice to dance to “dununa” without fear of being referred to as “stupid” and bemoaned the use of derogatory language in the newspaper’s editorial opinion. She said the youths who choose to support the ruling PF should not be called stupid because it was their right to associate with a party of their choice.
