  1. Kabaso is captain of which Chipolopolo team? How many captains.
    It’s like PF, like to use title “commanders”.
    Then they have commanders in chief.

  2. This is very good information. One of the greatest testament to our global reach is reading about our own citizens making contribution to the success of others at the world stage. These young people represent us. As such we need to give them support as long as they project positive images of Zambia. Most people do not realize that competing at the international level is very difficult and competitive. Some of these young Zambians are actually displacing locally talented players because they are better at the game.
