    to hell with chris katongo,DROGBA ALL THE WAY.

  10. zambia  December 3, 2012 at 09:19

    PLEASE LET US PUT POLITICS ASIDE. IT IS A FACT THAT CHRIS GAVE 100% FOR ZAMBIA ON THE ROAD TO WINNING THE AFCON. PLEASE VOTE FOR HIM, ITS NOT EVERY YEAR THAT A ZAMBIAN IS NOMINATED FOR THIS AWARD. CHRIS AND THE TEAM WON THE AFCON TROPHY FOR ALL ZAMBIANS. ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION. ALL THE BEST TO CHRIS AND TO OUR TEAM AS THEY PREPARE TO RETAIN THE AFCON TROPHY!

    here we are only 12 million and only less than quarter of our people have access to internet have acess to internet, secondly, those west Africans have apopulation 3 or 4 times more than ours and have better access to internet for them to vote, so how fair is this competition, its like democracy in Zambia, bembas will always rule because we are majority. On a sad note, guys stop using bad phrases over the barotse issue. those of you who are calling for ‘killing of coackroaches’ are full of shit and you were born out of the anus,how do you say such, u are sick. I’m very disturbed because my wife is Lozi and we have beautiful kids, one is a medical doctor who even treats some of you fools calling for mass murder of Lozis.

  12. memory  December 1, 2012 at 20:47

    Chris am behind you. and as Zambians we are proud of you!

  13. rocktree  December 1, 2012 at 19:25

  14. Fly-over Bridge  December 1, 2012 at 18:52

    Let the PF vote for this brainless partisan fool

  15. Michael Chilufya Mumembe  December 1, 2012 at 18:33

    YES, Katongo is a PF cadre. When he plays he should be playing for Zambia and not for PF. My vote is for Katongo because he is a Zambian. Thus, I hereby first shout: Go Zambia, Go! Then, Go Katongo,Go!

  16. Bull  December 1, 2012 at 17:06

    For once, i have joined PAYA FAMA to vote for their cadre.

  17. Le Harve  December 1, 2012 at 14:50

    I have over 2000 facebook friends and I will make sure I convince them to all vote for Christopher. History in the making!

  18. NGO  December 1, 2012 at 14:09

    I have voted for him already. Politics aside, lets all vote for him, he made us proud and told my frinds to do the same.

  19. gj  December 1, 2012 at 14:01

    Katongo ni watu guys.

    • bad brains  December 1, 2012 at 17:13

      ni wanu ba PF

  20. EDY  December 1, 2012 at 13:56

    EVEN IF HE LOSES THE GUY IS A PF CADRE,THE DONT KUBEBA FAN IE A LIAR.INSTEAD OF BEING NEUTRAL HE WAS PLAYING PF OR DONT KUBEBA ANTICS….ABASH KATONGO

  21. JS  December 1, 2012 at 13:51

    I voted for him, Christopher Katongo, last weekend,

    • rule of law  December 1, 2012 at 19:47

      KATONGO CAN ONLY WIN IF PF WAS THE ONE TO COUNT VOTES VIVA YAYA

  22. rule of law  December 1, 2012 at 13:37

    KATONGO IS A PF CADER LET SATA VOTE FOR HIM. I HAVE VOTED FOR YAYA TOURE

    • TruthOfTheMata  December 1, 2012 at 13:51

      That’s the problem with you Zambians. You always want to bring politics into everything. It doesn’t matter what political party he supports. He is Zambian, just like you and I. He did not win Afcon for people that support PF, he won it for all Zambians. So if you really love your country (which I am assuming you do) please vote for our captain.

      • LEXUS  December 1, 2012 at 14:04

        BUT WHAT ABOUT THE PF DON’T KUBEBA SYMBOL AND DANCE?WHAT DO U CALL THAT?THOSE ARE POLITICS…WHAT IS MAYUKA RAISED THE MMD SYMBOL,WERE U GOING TO BE QUITE?NO.
        THE WHOLE THING WAS POLITICISED WITH KAMBWILI ATTRIBUTING THE PERFORMANCE TO PF.

        VOTE FOR HIM…AS FOR ME NOTHING FOR HIM.LET KATONGO BE NEUTRAL AND MOVE AWAY FROM PARTISAN GESTURES WHICH WILL REMOVE OTHER PEOPLE’S INTEREST FROM ZAMBIA NATIONAL TEAM.

      • LEXUS  December 1, 2012 at 14:12

        WHAT ABOUT THE POLITICAL PF DONT KUBEBE SYMBOL KATONGO WAS RAISING?ARE THOSE NOT POLITICS.HE BROUGHT POLITICS IN ZAMBIAN SOCCER.THESE CHAPS SHOULD PLAY IT NEUTRAL AND FIND NEUTRAL SYMBOLS AND NOT THOSE POLITICALLY INCLINED.
        OTHERWISE WE MISTOOK THEM FOR PF CADRES.

        IMAGINE MAYUKA RAISING AN MMD SYMBOL AFTER SCORING…WILL YOU HAVE BEEN QUIET?

  23. fresh mind  December 1, 2012 at 13:27

    Viva katongo….am sharing dis info on my fb page

    When is the ZNBC Africa Footballer of the year going to be held?

  25. Blessed  December 1, 2012 at 12:01

    Hey my fellow Zambians just vote for katongo and do not be jealousy. Remember learn to celebrate others so that you also may receive your blessings.

  26. HANTEETE  December 1, 2012 at 11:51

    @LYELELA LYAMBAI, YOU ARE A FOOL MY COUSIN, GO GO GO CHRIS.

    • Lyelela Lyambai  December 1, 2012 at 14:38

      Nobody is stopping you from voting for the pf cadre. I have a choice not to vote for him as I dont think he behaved in the national interest in displaying pf symbols on the pitch. He is a member of the Zambian national team not the pf party team. If you cant understand the simple point I am making i find it very ironical for you to call me a fool!

  27. Lyelela Lyambai  December 1, 2012 at 11:43

    cant vote for him after his donchi kubeba antics – sorry!

  28. Politics  December 1, 2012 at 11:07

    two reasons i cant vote for chris;
    1. He is a cadre
    2. He uses juju

    my vote goes to yaya!

    • MS  December 1, 2012 at 12:02

      You have a small brain my dear and cant think beyond your nose.

      • Politics  December 1, 2012 at 12:37

        create your own africa where chris wil be your footballer of the year,,

      • bad brains  December 1, 2012 at 14:20

        You shud say cant see beyond your nose and not think beyond the nose.

        Otherwise abash this cadre type of a captain…

        You who have Big Brains should vote for your fellow soccer PF cadre.

  29. Vilifier  December 1, 2012 at 10:54

    Christopher was the best player at the AFCON, but to rate him as the best african player for 2012 is far fetched my friends

  30. mk  December 1, 2012 at 08:21

    Let’s vote Chris. He may not be prying his trade in Europe but it is what he did as captain of our team that should count. As underdogs, he captained a disciplined side and brought the AFCON trophy for the first time.

  31. Umkonto We Sizwe  December 1, 2012 at 08:11

    I hv just cast my vote on katongo using my own pen for fear that drogba may rIg. Yaba Zambians can be so foolish. They went and faithfully voted for their own troubles using their own pens. Anyway all the best Chris

  32. mpazi sichilongo  December 1, 2012 at 08:07

    kindly advertise the phone nr for voting for Chris thru our own newspapers n mobile operators thru text mesages,we are behind you,viva Zambia

  33. B Shams  December 1, 2012 at 07:41

    only once

  34. MOJO  December 1, 2012 at 07:20

    lets vote for Chris in numbers.

  35. Mr Kiss  December 1, 2012 at 07:15

    Politics aside.how many times am i allowed to vote for katongo?

  36. SUNZU  December 1, 2012 at 06:48

    @Ikafa. I think I watched news where it was said that Ghana fans protested the removal of Chris from the CAF list. Countries such as Ghana and Nigeria may not vote for their fellow West Africans.

  37. ikafa  December 1, 2012 at 06:00

    if this the way the awards are determined then we are joking.the west Africans out number us in population and they would never vote anyone who is not west African if pitted with their own.
    let the organizers use this formula to determine who deserves this award.
    Drogba won the champions league
    yaya toure won the English league
    while Demba Ba performed well for his club but
    when the three played against Christopher Katongo side they all lost and chris won Africa’s most prestigious Cup, the Mandela Challenge and is in pole position to qualify Zambia for their Maiden World Cup Appearance.
    So who should be given the award simple
    Christopher Katongo

    • MS  December 1, 2012 at 11:59

      That is a brilliant analysis. I have voted for Chris.

      • Nevermind  December 1, 2012 at 13:30

        good analysis, Chris I give u my vote

  38. EZRON  December 1, 2012 at 05:57

    Chris we are behind you.
