SANGOMA 'The Octopus' Predicts Zambia's Victory In This Year's AFCON Finals

A SOUTH African traditional healer and fortune teller or Sangoma claims the Chipolopolo boys will win this year’s Africa Cup-especially that their two goals against Senegal coincide with the date this year’s Africa Cup finals started and will end.

Sangoma Mchuzu tells a South African radio station Ukhodzi fm that God told him earlier this month that Zambia would bag this year’s Africa Cup.

“God told me in my sleep that this year was for Zambia…there is no doubt about it,” ‘Dr’ Mchudzu said.

He added that after Zambia beat Senegal on Saturday night, he was sure that Zambia would emerge victorious.

“Remember that Zambia scored their first goal in the 12th minute which is the exact date Africa cup will end. They scored their second goal in the 21st minute which is the date the Africa Cup started.

“This confirms God’s message to me that Zambia will win. Let’s all South Africans rally behind our Zambian neighbours so that they truly win,” the Sangoma said.

The claim that Zambia would win this year’s Africa Cup apparently originated from another South African- Marks Maponyane who is a Soccer Analyst at the state owned South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).

Reviewing the Zambia Versus Senegal match which was beamed live on SABC 1, Maponyane told other soccer analysts that he felt Zambia would bag the Africa Cup because of the coincidence of its goals with the Africa Cup dates.

“We have seen Zambia scoring its goals on dates that have something to do with the day the Africa Cup started and ended. Do we see Zambia winning the AFCON finals because of this? I would love to think so!” Maponyane said.

Maponyane was a professional footballer for 17 years. In 1984 he was nominated as South African Sports Hero of the Year. In 1983, 1987 and 1994 Maponyane was awarded the SA Footballer of the year Award – the only South African to receive this award more than once. He was the Captain of Kaizer Chiefs between 1985 and 1988 and played for Bafana Bafana from 1992 to 1995.

Zambia on Saturday night earned an excellent opening day 2-1 win over fancied Senegal in Group A of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

Emmanuel Mayuka opened the scoreline for Zambia after 12 minutes, with Rainford Kalaba doubling their lead seven minutes later.

Senegal substitute Dame Ndoye pulled one back for Senegal with a beautifully taken strike.

But the Teranga Lions proved sluggish throughout and wasted a handful of chances to level the tie.
