Where I stayed
For 2 days people were running in the street, shouting, horning their cars en it was one big event. I joined the celebration the day after at Showgrounds where it was crowded as never before. On the news you even heard that people fainted or got wounded due to stampedes.
It is a blessing for Zambia to win the Africa Cup of Nations since they never done it before. The extra dimension it gets is because the entire Zambian national team (except for Kalusha Bwalya) was killed in a plane crash in 1993 in Libreville, Gabon. The same city where the Chipolopolo boys played the final of 2012.
