      Your bitterness, envy and jealousy about Sata’s success will choke you to death one of these days. You think the president in this picture was there to buy and sell cows for you TONGAs. The president went to AFCON where he met the players and so the heading is spot on and leave our president alone and keep choking with bitterness , jealousy and envy ..2016 ili katali baba. Hope you make it , if your survive your spirit of bitterness because it will kill you

    Anyone remotely interested in this is a hypocrite, and I am saying that because I mean it
    Well they should apologise for fooling the world that they were worthy champions and also for disgracing everyone Zambian who has known the champions to be so for 2 years and only become as such for less than a year, well 11 months to be precise

    If you cant throw up, you clearly need to see your local GP. And please I don’t mean your African Doctors, saying that it may be your only choice

Let’s learn from these mistakes and build from there. We need to win 2015 AFCON. Also let us get the 2017 Host from Libya to Zambia as Libyans’ still has their security issues. START BIDDING NOW it will boost tourism. Sports Minister, put up a committee we need AFCON in Zambia in 2017.

    Just wondering why someone who claims never to be interested in what Zambia is doing always seems to have time to post comments. My advice to you ‘Mushota’ is if you hate Zambia so much pls give up your Zambian citizenship and claim that of the counrty you seem to love. Zambia is a loving country, we help promote each each in whatever endevours we may face. There is no place for negative bitter people like you in Zambia. Lastly if you dont care that much why do you waste time reading and posting your negative comments. Grow up and learn to understand that success comes with time.

    we are under going “change management’ We are currently in Denial, by tommorrow will be in” resistance’ when two remaing team are booted out today.On the weekend when either Nigeria or Ivory Coast is booted will be in “acceptance stage’. The time it will be semi-final and final will reach the commitment stage and then explore other avenues and opportunities. So what is happening to most soccer fans today is normal in human life. What is dangerous is to commit sucide or give up.

    There was nothing wrong with the Presidential visit, if anything it was motivating. If the President ended at attending official openning and came back, its you the same people who could have criticised him for failing to go and encourage the boys. We just need to re-structure this team and bring in fresh blood, especially upfront, the midfield and defence is quite good but we need finishers. As for Mushota, she appears very bored where she is, hence commenting on every Zambian posting, come back home girl and get your street career back!!!

    I am seeing a pattern in Mushota. Every time she learns a new English word she posts it on LT. When she doesn’t get corrected in her usage of that word by a majority of bloggers, she knows she has used it correctly. Since the start of the AFCON I have seen the word ‘abysmal’ in a lot of her postings on Zambians’ performance in this tournament.
    And guess what, she learned from a cleaner in a council library, in Glasgow. So much for a PhD research student! I may have been invited (expelled) never to,come back to school in grade five but I am sure I can do better than Mushota. Nakambako chabe!
