  1. “Prostitutes Promise 2 Days Of Free Sex If Lungu Wins

    As presidential by-elections are getting 6 closer the excitement among different segments of the population is growing. Even prostitutes have not being left out, they have promised Zambians two days of free sex if Lungu wins

    “Speaking to our crew, Sex workers have called on Zambians to vote for Lungu if they want the country to move forward, and as a bonus they the have offered a 2 days of sex for free.”

  2. Zambia has played I match and lost.I had suggested they play Egypt or Algeria.
    Forget about AFCON.It will be an embarrassing outcome like the Burkina Fasso Ouagadougou outing.

  3. When other teams in the group are playing top quality opposition you are busy playing Cosmos from first division in south africa, shame on you bunch of losers you are not going anywhere with your remote controlled coach i hate to be Zambian on times like this.

  4. I see Zambia been kicked out just in the first round. No much preparations so far, playing SA and going down by a goal shouldn’t be something that should put much pride in our team. I foresee Janza been the culprit or maybe fired and people like Kalu will still be running the affairs of our beloved sports. History never seem to teach us lessons.
