The Confederation of African Football (Caf) is reviewing the manner in which the 2019, 2021 and 2023 Africa Cup of Nations tournaments were awarded to Cameroon and other West Africa nations by the previous Caf administration, reports say.

Phillip Chiyangwa, vice president of the Confederation of African Football and leader of Southern Africa regional football body (COSAFA), claims the hosting rights for those tournaments were corruptly awarded under the regime of Issa Hayatou.
The competitions have been scheduled to be hosted by Cameroon (2019), Ivory Coast (2021) and Guinea (2023) respectively, but the COSAFA chief claims it was not transparently awarded.

“Other regions were suffering, if you look at the background of the Issa Hayatou fall, it arises out of the fact that most of the competitions were being awarded to West Africa, not North Africa, not even Central Africa and not even Southern Africa,” Chiyangwa said.

Chiyangwa is one of those who fought  in a race to oust Caf’s longest serving administrator, Issa Hayatou. 

With Hayatou gone, Chiyangwa has now set eyes on dismantling the projects that were set out under the previous Hayatou led regime.
