Caf shelves stadia inspections in Kenya
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has canceled its intended inspection of the five stadia earmarked to host next year’s Chan tournament. The delegation of inspectors was set to jet in for the inspection scheduled to commence on Thursday.
CAF took the decision to cancel the inspection tour citing the current political unrest witnessed in the country which arose following the Supreme Court ruling that annulled President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory at last month’s general elections.
Through Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa, the continental bosses have tasked their second vice president Constant Omari to assess the political situation in the country before sending the inspectors.
“We have just been informed that in light of the recent happenings, CAF will be sending its second vice president Constant Omari Selemani to assess the political and security situation of the country before they can proceed with the inspection visit. Consequently, the planned inspection visit that was scheduled for Thursday has been shelved, with CAF informing us that they will only announce a new date after the assessment of the political situation in the country,” said Mwendwa.
CAF is expected to send inspectors to assess the works on the five facilities set to host next year’s Chan championships once the political waves are over.
