    1. Khama we love what you have so don’t let us down no matter what reason you have let’s rise our flag together

  1. What you did Khama is absolutely right, you failed us so many times its time to give other players a chance . Infact Fifa should Ban us becoz we just go to make up numbers not to compete. Or they are being paid to loose matches . It’s time our military Police deal with these players when they return . Watch out they are going to loose to the flames of Malawi by 2.goals to zero
