NO SOONER had the Black Mambas of Mozambique eliminated Chipolopolo from the 2019 AfCON than the Green Falcons of Nigeria and Banyanabanya jointly and whilst working independently eliminated She-polopolo from the Ghana Women AfCON via a 4 nil and 1-all draw, respectively.
However, Zambia sneaked into the finals through Zambia’s most decorated female FIFA referee in the name of Gladys Lengwe, who was at the centre of the pitch.
Truth be told, Gladys did her job professionally with the strongest command on the pitch.
This lady carried the Zambian flag high and it is my humble prayer that as the three African nations fly for the women World Cup, Gladys will be representing Africa among the referees.
I appeal to all well-meaning Zambians to rally behind this lady and give her all the necessary support she deserves.
Good luck Mama Gladys, the sky is the limit.
Go, go, gooooo.
