Ghana will not host the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) after disastrous preparations and confusion in the country following a purge by government that saw the Ghana Football Association unable to perform its duties after the resignation of former President Kwesi Nyantakyi and the closing of the offices putting Ghana football in shambles.
Kenya had made a presentation to host the tournament but CAF feels the country has only one stadium the Kasarani Stadium as Machakos Stadium has been ruled out.President Nick Mwendwa has been lobbying to have the tournament hosted in Kenya.
South Africa have been put on immediate standby as they have all facilities ready to host the tournament and president Ahmad will visit the country on August 31st and September 1, 2018.
The eight-team tournament is scheduled to take place between 17 November to 1 December 2018 but the dodgy pace of preparation look to have led to the decision.
A high powered government delegation led by the Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah visited CAF President in Madagascar two weeks ago in a bid to assuage the fear of the governing body but it was too late following the confusion that has engulfed Ghana football.
