    please ba Kamanga(FAZ PRESIDENT)can you start fulfilling your blue print promises before your election, among them having an established and well structured soccer league for the women. we no doubt have massive talent in this country which is going to waste because of lack of focus on the part of our football administrators. Let us have a good football league for our girls and women.

    Tough luck to the girls. Though i see you have improved in the last few years. RSA used to walk over you but now you can compete with them. They have invested in women soccer by miles compared to us.
