  1. And why did we not see Kamanga at Heroes Stadium during the Barca Vs Chipolopolo Legends match,we want a report!

    • I’ve seen it on Youtube. Looks like it was a fantastic event. Elvis Nkandu and Gary Nkombo were present. Failure Kamanga ducked.

  2. My little boy wanted to see Ronaldinho. Lusha too
    Mwaona lomba chi Achieve-Nothing Kamanga just wanted to prick a hole in a feel good event to celebrate our heroes. Just because he cant organise such a thing. He cant organise football in Zambia. Zambia once feared by all our neighbours all West Africans All North Africans. Now plays Chimpombwa football.

  3. What indeed was the quarrel about? FAZ likes making mountains out of anthills. That’s why they focus on tiny little achievements when we fans want afcon and world cup
