CAF Drop Kenya As CHAN Host, Retain Cameroon For AFCON

CAF Drop Kenya As CHAN Host, Retain Cameroon For AFCON

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have ruled that Kenya will no longer stage next year's CHAN and have now called for fresh bids beginning tomorrow.

CAF said the decision, a crushing blow for the east African country, was made "in light of accumulated delays from reports of the various inspection missions conducted in the country".

Some Caf officials in Accra also expressed concern about the political situation in Kenya, where recently annulled presidential elections are set to be re-run next month.

"Egypt has been designated host country because it is the only country to have provided a complete file on time, "said the CAF, which also reopened the applications for the Women's 2020 CAN, due to a lack of files received within the deadline".

The tax reform debate is in serious flux, still devoid of key details and marked by far more open questions than answered ones. Only three in 10 (29 per cent) said the U.S. should take action unilaterally if it decides to take military action.

All is not lost though given the biannual youth world cup (U-20 and U-17) FIFA World will be rotating in Africa and CAF will throw their support to Kenya to host either of the tournament.

Caf president Ahmad Ahmad and his collaborators arrived in the country on Friday ahead of the 2017 Wafu final between Ghana and Nigeria which is slated for Sunday at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium and held a meeting to deliberate on Kenya's preparedness for the Chan tournament as well as other pressing issues.

Nigeria are one of the qualifiers for this tournament. CAF said it needs to examine the state of Cameroon's "infrastructure to host the tournament", with the 2019 Cup of Nations the first to be expanded from 16 to 24 teams. Libya again withdrew as host for this year's edition and Gabon was given the tournament on short notice. "The identity of the bidding countries will be disclosed within a maximum of 15 days after the opening of the bidding process".
