The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has canceled its intended inspection visit that was scheduled to begin on Thursday, September 7, 2017, ahead of the 2018 CHAN tournament, scheduled to be hosted in Kenya

The move has been necessitated by the current political situation in the country, following the recent Supreme Court ruling that annulled President Uhuru Kenyatta’s election victory in the just concluded Presidential elections

“We have just been informed that in light of the recent happenings, CAF will be sending its 2nd Vice president Mr. Constant Omari Selemani to assess the political and security situation of the country before they can proceed with the inspection visit,” said FKF president Nick Mwendwa

“Consequently, the planned inspection visit that was scheduled for next week 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,” added the FKF president

Mr. Omari, who will be met by the FKF  president at JKIA, is expected to jet into the country today, Sunday, September 3, 2017at 1955hrs
