FKF agree with joint AFCON bid: Nyamweya

29 August 2014, 12:09

Nairobi - The Kenyan Football Federation have confirmed they will enter a joint bid to host the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations with Rwanda and Uganda.

Staging rights to the tournament are back up for grabs after Libya withdrew themselves as host nation due to political instability in the country.

The FKF will now, with East African neighbours Rwanda and Uganda, put their name into the hat for the 2017 showpiece.

A statement signed by FKF president Sam Nyamweya read: "I am delighted that Uganda and Rwanda have received positively the proposal by Football Kenya Federation to jointly pursue interest in bidding to host the 2017 Orange CAF Africa Cup of Nations after the bids were reopened following the withdrawal of Libya as the host nation.

"Mr. Nzamwita Vincent Degaule, Honourable President of the Federation of Rwanda Football Association (Ferwafa) and Mr. Moses Hassim Magogo, Honourable President of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations have written to us backing our proposal saying they would love us to further explore the opportunity of submitting to CAF our joint bid by the September 30, 2014 deadline."
