    I thought Zambia’s sata(n) is supposed to be dying? How come he is still looking strong?

    And Bro Hugh, did you sing that song “Its time to say good bye…” for the Gukurahundi?

      Sata reminds me of a boss boy. This man does not look like he has a mind of his own???

      Has the giant been sleeping for 33 years? An acceptance of failure? Zambia is laughing all the way to the bank because they know we not goin to be more attractive to tourists than zambia !!

    congradulations Zimbabwe for being awarded to host this prestigious event

    The most painful part is as an ordinary Zimbabwe I don’t even get to benefit anything from this. I don’t even care that we are hosting this event. Bob and his cronies are busy enriching themselves living lavish lives while the ordinary Zimbabweans suffer.
