    We should not celebrate Zambia holding position 97 when this should be much better – around 150.

    When Kalusha became FAZ President, Zambia was somewhere in the seventies. What this means is that with the “football EXPERT”, Zambia has IMPROVED by going down 31 steps.

    This is why I am very happy that Kalusha has improved Football in Zambia. I hope we can go down to 150. Let us sing songs of praise for Kalusha for he is a great Administrator. Achieving nothing yet people are complaining. Why complain when someone achieves nothing. That is being jealousy!!!
