After the experience in Rwanda over the past three weeks, all focus is now on Kenya, the hosts of the 2018 African Nations Championships (CHAN) which will be in the fifth edition.

Kenya will be hosting the fifth edition of the tournament and the CAF flag was handed to the Kenyan delegation in Kigali, led by the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Sam Nyamweya signifying the clearance to host the tournament.

“We are very optimistic we will host a good tournament. We are thankful to CAF for this opportunity and the Kenyan people should give us support as we engage in this task. The job starts immediately and we promise we will be ready by 2018,” Nyamweya said.

Accompanying Nyamweya was the Sports Cabinet Secretary Dr. Hassan Wario, FKF Vice Chair Robert Asembo and the FKF CEO Michael Esakwa.
