Zambians have joined Nigerians in the protest against the killings of their brothers and sisters in South Africa. This comes after Nigerians destroyed properties of South African owned companies in across the country in protest. Zambians might just have taken a cue from there.

Recall that the governing body of Zambia soccer cancelled their international friendly match with South Africa just yesterday.
The friendly match was scheduled for Saturday in Zambia. The statement released by the Football Association of Zambia reads;
“The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) regrets to inform members of the public that the international friendly match between Zambia and South Africa that was scheduled for National Heroes Stadium on Saturday, 7 September 2019 has been called off in view of the prevailing security concerns in South Africa.
“FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala has relayed the message to the South African Football Association (SAFA) about the decision.”
