The Confederation of African Football (Caf) will on Saturday decide on who to hand the hosting rights of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN).

The international tournament for locally-based players was due to be hosted by Kenya but the rights have since been withdrawn by the governing body.

Caf predicated its decision to strip Kenya of the rights of the poor state or preparedness of the country.

Ethiopia, Morocco and Equatorial Guines have already shown their interests in hosting the tournament.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the Caf president, Ahmad, disproved claims that Cameroon might lose the hosting rights to the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

Speaking during a meeting of the Africa Cup of Nations organising committee, he reaffirmed that the West African nation is set to host the tournament.

“At no time had any consideration been given to revisiting decisions already taken in conformity with the provisions of the Statutes and leading to the designation of Cameroon, Ivory Coast and Guinea, as host country of the next three editions in 2019, 2021 and 2023.

“Our role is to best accompany Cameroon, which organizes in 2019, in a new format, to properly fill in the list of requirements of the host agreement,” a statement read.
