🗣”I was lucky I didn’t go into coma. So after they told me that it was heat stroke, I just hear about heat stroke and I googled what it is,

 

 

Whatever I found is exactly what was happening to me especially in the second half. I started getting confused and reached a point where I could not hear anyone.

 

 

I reached a point where I could hear some words like someone was communicating with me and people where telling me that I end the match. It was a very strange situation.

 

 

But I just want to thank CAF, the referees department the CAF executive because I was visited by two president during my shot stay there. The president of FAZ and the president of CAF himself he came to the hotel to visit me”

 

 

 

 

“I would say my family and people of Zambia you are lucky to receive me and talking to you right now I have seen people going for duty and come back in a casket and I was very close to coming back like that and it would have been a very different story.

 

 

 

I don’t know how many vehicles would have been lined up here to receive my casket. That would have been the story of the day but we thank God that things happened the other way. God saved me.

 

 

Today people are saying negative things about me let it be, as I speak to you like this. We count it a blessing. I’m proud to come back like this talking to you”

 

 

 

 

Sikazwe is set to have some weeks break before returning to continental duties in the CAF Confederation Cup in mid February.
