“My heart is sore, this should not be happening”, lamented Soccer icon Kalusha Bwalya as he joined millions of other Africans in condemning Xenophobia which erupted in South Africa three days ago.
“Africans, we are one, let’s not be divided,” he continued in a message posted on his twitter account.
“My heart is sore. This shouldn’t be happening. Africans, we are one. Let us not be divided. ‘I am African not because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me’ Kwame Nkrumah. Our borders were not drawn by us. Africa Unite Ubuntu.”
The attacks on foreign nationals based in South Africa has backlashed with the Football Association calling off an international friendly match between Zambia and that country.
The Association pointed out that some Zambians would retaliate against Bafana Bafana if the match was to be held over the weekend.
Chipolopolo has since accepted an invitation to participate at a tournament in Namibia to compensate for the failed international friend against Xenophobia associated South Africa.
