  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  15. 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!

    • 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.

      • 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

      • 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?

    • 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!

      Lyelela Lyambai - December 1, 2012

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

    Lyelela Lyambai - December 1, 2012

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

    my vote goes to yaya!

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

    Vilifier - December 1, 2012
    10:54

  30. 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. 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

    Mr Kiss - December 1, 2012

  36. @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.

    SUNZU - December 1, 2012

  37. 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
