The Confederations of African Football has confirmed that Kenya will host the 2018 African Nations Championship after meeting the required stadium standards.
The confirmation came in at the CAF’s 39th Ordinary Meeting held at the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa.
The committee noted that there has been a significant progress made on the ground and there is a strong commitment to hold the competition and making it a success.
The information comes a day after the CAF inspection team toured the country between February 20-24 led by the body’s Vice -President Seketu Patel who presented the report to the committee.
The CAF inspectors visited four various sites across the country including Nairobi,Mombasa,Embu,Meru and Machakos.
Rumours had circulated that Kenya was about to lose the hosting rights to either Morocco or Ethiopia because of their unpreparedness.
