Our lead slipping away
many many thanks to all who have voted for Tanzania
More points for Comoros, but we're slipping down the table
A few more points from Djibouti but still too far behind at the moment
sixth.. AAAH! close, close... Desperate looking for points now :o
Mozambique are running away with it! Madagascar have been getting low votes, so other nations have caught up...hopefully we can stay near the top at the end of it.
Sorry Jack, still gave you 10 points good enough for further block voting?
Yeah, that will do
I can't sleep, I have nothing better to do, but I'm rubbish at editing photos.
I present Afrovision.

I don't know what's worse - the hair or the fact that there's a TV in it.
Good effort, SCIAG [noparse]
Lester Meek: South Africa calling Somalia…
Hussain Bisad: Hello South Africa. Did you just gasp?
Lester Meek: Yes, I did. Sorry Mr Bisad. I knew you were the person with the second-largest handspan in the world, but I didn’t know just how big it was.
Hussain Bisad: It is very big.
Lester Meek: Yes. I can see. Do you have votes for us?
Hussain Bisad: Of course. Here are Somalia’s votes:
Hussain Bisad: And Somalia’s three biggest votes:
8 points go to…Ethiopia!
10 points go to……Kenya!
12 points go to…
Hussain Bisad: Thank you South Africa!
Lester Meek: Stop waving! I can’t see your face! Somalia’s votes carry great news for Whoopy Dee’e’s Djibouti. Kenya will also be pleased at the chance of getting ever closer to qualifying for the Final.
Lester Meek: Hello to you Comorians!
Michael Venter: Hello to you South Africans!
Lester Meek: What is the weather like?
Michael Venter: Tropically warm, but it’s getting very dark at the moment.
Lester Meek: Do you have votes for us?
Michael Venter: I sure do! Here are the Comoros’ votes:
Michael Venter: And here are our three big votes:
8 points go to…Mozambique!
10 points go to……Tanzania!
12 points go to…
Michael Venter: Thank you South Africa!
Lester Meek: Super Lampard will be happy. And the other big votes go to the two at the top of the leaderboard. Let’s see how the table stands.
Lester Meek: Joaquim Ntadi’s Madagascar have caught up with Tanzania, with Mozambique still leading the way. Ryan Andrews’s Swaziland become the first nation to be eliminated; they can no longer reach the Semi-Final. Next we receive the votes from leaders Mozambique and from bottom-placed Swaziland.
Wheeeeey some more points for me, not doing too badly but never going to win now.
Funny enough, I was just thinking about the "Afro" in Afrovision.
For Semi-Final 2, I am still awaiting these votes:
magvest, Burkina Faso
JSalter, Cape Verde
PluckaDuck, Egypt (understand you've been away)
hasdgfas, Ivory Coast
Vote by PM please or else face a 12-point deduction! Voting closes Friday at 9:13pm.
Wow, first eliminated. Go me. Christ this is a miserable day on the forums.
Nice one Comoros, right back into it
Another two points. We're still clinging in there.
This is getting really close, I hope I didn't vote for Tanzania
I hope you gave 12 points to Zambia
Lester Meek: Lester Meek to Mozambique!
Eusébio: Mozambique to Lester Meek!
Lester Meek: Who’s this? Just the one and only footballing legend Eusébio da Silva Ferreira!
Eusébio: Thank you Mr Meek, thank you South Africa.
Lester Meek: How is life treating you?
Eusébio: Very well! I believe you want some votes?
Lester Meek: Yes, please do share.
Eusébio: And here are Mozambique’s top three votes:
8 points go to…Zambia!
10 points go to……Tanzania!
Eusébio: Thank you South Africa!
Lester Meek: Thanks Mozambique. I’m not sure you’ll be too pleased that your generosity towards Thelonius Davis’s Tanzania has knocked you off the top spot.
Lester Meek: Swaziland, as you’re so close, I’m sure you’ll be able to hear us!
Ilana Lapidos: Loud and clear, South Africa!
Lester Meek: We are proud to be graced by the presence of Ilana Lapidos, Swaziland’s Miss World entrant who placed 15th in 1986.
Ilana Lapidos: Today is as much about celebrating Africa as my performance then was.
Lester Meek: Thank you Ms Lapidos. Would you be willing to take this Semi-Final ever-so-close to completion by giving us Swaziland’s votes?
Ilana Lapidos: I would love to, Lester.
Ilana Lapidos: And here are Swaziland’s top three votes:
10 points go to……Malawi!
Ilana Lapdios: Thank you South Africa! See you in the Final!
Lester Meek: Yes we will, where you’ll be voting but, as we already know, not participating. Christina Modoglou will be extremely grateful of her Zambia receiving maximum points as they are next to vote and it is still touch-and-go whether or not they will qualify. Let’s see how the table stands.
Lester Meek: So dafuge’s Mozambique have qualified for the Final, as have Thelonius Davis’s Tanzania despite their points deduction. For our final votes, we go to Zambia.
Mixed emotions there Dafuge
3rd bottom and out
Ah damn, eliminated
Votes in, come on Cape Verde.
And now Canvey? I know what will happen XD
No games= no chance of going through
The difference between 4th and 7th will be less then 5 points
Sent my votes in.
Ooh, not qualified yet, but so close!!
Lester Meek: Zambia, can you hear us?
Kalusha Bwalya: Yes we can, South Africa.
Lester Meek: Ah, Zambia’s most capped player, Kalusha Bwalya.
Kalusha Bwalya: Please, call me Kalusha.
Lester Meek: Kalusha, would you please do us the kind honour of finishing the first Semi-Final of the inaugural Afrovision Managerial Contest by telling us Zambia’s votes?
Kalusha Bwalya: It’s my pleasure. Here are the votes for Zambia:
Lester Meek: I can now tell you, Zambia, that unless you give 12 points to Malawi, you are definitely in the Semi-Final. Uganda and Rwanda are out, Madagascar and Kenya are in.
Kalusha Bwalya: Here are Zambia’s three major votes:
8 points go to…
10 points go to……
12 points go to……
Kalusha Bwalya: Thank you South Africa!
Lester Meek: Thank you, Zambia, and congratulations on reaching the Final. Some more points for Thelonius Davis’s Tanzania there, but everyone is now focused on Zambia’s deadlock with Malawi. As I said, 12 points was needed, and 10 just doesn’t cut it. Malawi were their own undoing, as they received one 12 points, from Mozambique, but Zambia received two, from Swaziland and Malawi themselves. Let’s see how the nations all finished.
Lester Meek: Thelonius Davis’s Tanzania just pipped Mozambique to the post there, but dafuge’s team still qualify for the Final. Joaquim Ntadi’s Madagascar will be representing the island nations, and Alfred Jarry’s Kenya and Christina Modoglou’s Zambia have also earned the right to come back here in a few days time.
Lester Meek: Viewers via BATRACER, please tune in tomorrow for the second of our three live Semi-Finals. Until then, good night!
Finished 8th there. Not a bad result for the little island nation of Mauritius.
Missed out on top
YEY! Kenya made it! Thanks to all those that voted for us.
Commiserations to those that didn't make the semis
Yet to vote for Semi-Final 2:
This is your final notice - vote by PM please or else face a 12-point deduction! Voting closes Friday at 9:13pm.
11th and some way off, oh well.
At least I didn't finish last. Bloc voting just killed me. My only neighbor in this was Mozambique and they only gave us 4
Which wasn't really that bad when you consider I have 8 neighbours
Really hoping we can go through to the final, teams will hopefully see our class.
The 3rd semi is nearing. Time for Congo to shine (& block vote )
Disappointing 10th place overall
1 point away from qualification
Going through on exactly... zero points I said five, I knew two I had even only two neighbours the least number of the top 7 (and only one gave us points:P)
I know. I'm cursing geography.

I'm looking forward to seeing Sudan progress to their first final
Liberia will be topping at least one of those stat lists, could go one way or the other
Just to let you know I will be going on holiday tomorrow for a week. Depending on the internet connection I will try and continue to follow during the week but probably wont be able to post.
You'll probably miss the start of voting for your Semi-Final, but I'll keep it open at the other end for you.
