A few weeks back Zambia joined some fellow African states to denounce SA's so-called xenophobia and persuaded their national football team not to play our Bafana Bafana, as if our team had gone on a violent rampage against some foreign-owned stores.

Poor Zambia. Now she has forgotten that SA is xenophobic. From next month she will be importing electricity from us, the xenophobes. Why?

Zambia is suffering from a severe electricity deficit that causes daily power cuts.

Let's not forget that these Zambian hypocrites are sitting on top of the second-largest copper deposits in Africa. Yet they have to run to SA to ask for electricity, totally forgetting that they have been insulting us and boycotting our football team.
