    • Ba Anthony: FIFA appointments are not about incabency naimwe. Don’t shows your lack of knowledge here. Is Kalusha for example a member of president of any association? The guy deserves it and what God has purposes in your life no man can slow it down. Man can just delay you but can never stop it. Congrats Doc

  1. Why are you people so hateful, the man has accomplished something positive….they should have given it blah blah….just be happy for him, he deserves it.

  2. Now we are celebrating doctors instead of footballers winning FIFA accolades. That’s just how our football has disappeared from the radar
