  1. All Lenjes, Lambas, Tongas, Bembas will not vote for MMD, all Easterners, some Lozis and Kaondes will go for MMD. Plain truth.

  2. I thought this was about Zesco United’s game…how does tribalistic politics come in??? Dumb asses…

  3. ZESCO learn to win home games pliz. Now you have to beat those Nigerians in their own backyard. Kaya!!

  4. Well done Zesco United FC for a draw. Its a very good game . No card flashing or rough play.
    What is happening to ZESCO UNITED FC. I saw from afar the Chairman Bruno Mukeya missing. Its rumoured there is friction or he was slapped with some fake charge by some jealous chap in personnel department. Can some one from Head Office interven before Zesco United FC is robbed of Bruno’s able leadership. From outside Zesco United looks organised but there are some chaps with hidden agendas.

  5. THE INVESTIGATOR #9 I think you should investigate further on Bruno´s issue! I would rather not blog on it but the fact is, his case (dishonest) is now before the court in Ndola! For the same offence over 30 Zesco employees have so far been fired! So the best you can do is pray for Bruno to be aquitted for him not to be MISSING from Zesco united bench as you put it!

  6. #1 You are very correct. Nyama Soya will not get a vote come 2011 from the groupings mentioned. The Lenjes are the determinant force because they are the true “Bantu Bosano” and not Botatwe. They include the Kanodes, Lamabas, Ilas and the Tongas. In fact Lenje is Tonga spoken with a “Bemba Accent”. Kulibonesha ta.

  7. No1# dont feel inferioir and intimidated by your small useless tribe…you sound so s t u p i d. This is a wrong place for you.you are a real b astard and dont start things you cant finish. Just like Sata.

  8. I fill Caf is upto something, my friends did you see what I saw, Zesco Vs El Merreike, Arab referrees, Kana Vs Al Hilal, Arab Referrees. Its like CAF wants to make sure atleast 1 arabic team reaches the semis. I see why the El Merreike coach was so highly motivited prior to the match, becoz he knew that one of his fellows would handle the match. Zesco had a clear goal, I have looked at it from all angles, Sakala was not 1 inch offside. It’s high time we demand impartial referrees, starting with the Zambia Vs Algeria Game, FAZ are you listerning.Take my advice seriously. Now Zesco, no letting up on what has to be done, practice must intensify, I can not give specifics here, but am yet to get in touch with ba Simukonda. No time to fear, we can beat kano at their home or get a scoring draw.
