Prostitutes in Lusaka’s Kanyama, John Laing, Chawama and Kalingalinga compounds last night offered themselves free of charge to every Jim and Jack as part of their celebration after Zambia beat Ghana 1-0.
A check by The Independent Post (TIP) at nightclubs such as Kanyama’s Kanchembele and Chine Chikayeba found long queues of men waiting to have sex with a limited number of prostitutes.
A single prostitute served nearly 11 men and there were more than 200 men wanting to celebrate Zambia’s first qualification to the Africa Cup final since 1994 in style.
The situation was the same at John Laing’s Corogo night Club which is situated just opposite John Laing Basic School. But at Corogo, a man in his mid twenties was beaten up after he took long to attain orgasm when his turn to have sex with the prostitute came.
“Yes, we beat him up because he took too long to ejaculate. We were too many of us on line and the guy kept on wasting time on top of the prostitute,” said an eye-witness, identified only as James.
And in Chawama as well as Kalingalinga, TIP correspondents say only a handful of prostitutes were made to serve tens of Chipolopolo fans.
But another soccer fan who claims not have taken part in the ‘mass servicing’ of prostitutes said the development was unfortunate. Mike Tembo suspected that many young people might have contracted the HIV virus and other STIs during the ‘sexual celebration. ’
“I think when Zambia plays the final, free condoms need to be provided so that we can protect our young men. Many of them had sex with the prostitutes without condoms,” Tembo said.
Zambia’s win over Ghana sent the whole Zambia into wild celebration. Soccer fans celebrated the win in all manner of ways. Fortunately, no deaths were recorded at the time this story was published.
Coach Herve Renard said that he was happy that Zambia has told the world through the beating of the Black stars that Ghana are still toddlers.
“We’ve won and I am very happy. At least we’ve shown the world that Ghana are toddlers,” Renard said.
He added that Zambia will now be aiming at beating Ivory Coast on February 12.
Ghana paid the penalty as Asamoah Gyan saw a penalty saved before Zambia scored with their only attack of the second half in a 1-0 win in their African Cup of Nations semi-final in a sodden Bata.
Zambia substitute Emmanuel Mayuka completed a smash-and-grab victory for the Chipolopolo boys as he tucked the ball beyond Ghana keeper Adam Kwarasey from 22 yards on 79 minutes to complete a miserable day for the 2010 World Cup quarter-finalists.
Zambia will return to the Gabon capital of Libreville for the final, 19 years after the fallen heroes were tragically wiped out when a plane crashed heading towards Dakar for a World Cup qualifier with Senegal in 1993.
Under coach Herve Renard, Zambia is certainly physically strong enough to provide a stern test for Ivory Coast.
