Sports Minister Chishimba Kambwili has asked Zambians to pray that the nation’s 2019 Africa Cup bid succeeds.
Zambia is facing stiff competition from Algeria, Ivory Coast, Guinea and Cameroon.
Kambwili said the clergy should lead Zambians in praying for the 2019 AFCON bid.
He repeated that Zambia’s 2019 Africa Cup bid will be successful.
“You know that as Zambians we believe in prayer so I can only invite all the pastors, priests, bishops and reverends to pray for Zambia to be given this opportunity to host the Africa Cup,” Kambwili said.
CAF will announce the successful bidder next month.
“I have never started a crusade and failed, if we fail it will be my first failure in my entire political career and I told CAF inspectors that it will be unreasonable for them to dent my CV, so certainly they have to favour Zambia,” he added
