The selection of Zambia had to debut in the CAF (African Cup) against Morocco without their star player, the striker and captain Barbra Bandwhich the organization excluded for «medical reasons», although the real reason seems to be different according to some local journalists.

Several local journalists explain that the reason for his absence from the list is a consequence of blood tests, carried out by the CAF, which revealed an excessively high level of testosterone and a «manly body». «About the absence of Barbra Banda in the competition I cannot give you the real reasons. It would be better if you ask CAF,» said the Zambian coach, Bruce Mwape. However, a clear response to her absence was expected in Zambia and this angered some in the country.

Some netizens claim that the Zambian Football Federation’s inaction with the report has led to this exclusion of the player. Zambia have also reportedly received warnings about Nachula Rachel and Racheal Kundananji, the first to be accused by Cameroon of being a man during the last round of the 2020 Olympic qualifiers, as was Barbra Banda.
