The Confederation of African Football (CAF) came to the rescue of Kenya’s representatives at the CAF Confederations Cup with the threat of three of the team’s players being locked out of the game against St. Eloi Lupopo.
Bandari will be traveling to the Democratic Republic of Congo and while the players do not need a work permit to play in Kenya, the document is a necessity for Visa processing in Congo.
To that effect the club wrote to CAF for help on the matter and the club technical director Edward Oduor has confirmed that CAF reacted in the affirmative.
“After our appeal to CAF for help, they have written back to us and informed us we will have their Visa clearance once we are in Congo. So all is ok now and the three are part of the traveling team,” Edward Oduor said.
Bandari will be making a first ever appearance at the continental scene in the game and will be looking to register a good result ahead of the home return.
