Confederation of African Football (CAF) President Ahmad Ahmad made a surprise visit to the country on Tuesday.
Ahmad met top Football Kenya Federation (FKF) officials led by its president Nick Mwendwa and executive member Nabea Mureithi where they discussed a number of issues.
The CAF supremo’s motorcade complete with police security caused a stir in Machakos town where he went to watch Kenya play Malawi.
Speaking to Feverpitch Ahmad assured that Kenya will host next year’s Africa Nations Championships (CHAN).
“From our side, it is only the Kenyan government that can say they do not want to host the tournament. It remains Kenya’s to host to the end,” he said.
He urged the government to support FKF to ensure the tournament goes on smoothly in January.
“The FKF President is doing his best to ensure that the tournament is held successfully. He needs the support of the state in every way.”
