CAF Postpones Inspection Mission To Cameroon Indefinitely Because Of Insecurity

Report says CAF's appointed team that was scheduled to begin an eight day inspection on Cameroon's infrastructural readiness for the 2019 African Cup Of Nation has been postponed indefinitely.

In letter to FECAFOOT, CAF notified that following the withdrawal of the audit firm Price WaterHouse Coopers(PWC) contracted for the mission, the visit that was to begin today Sunday August 20th, 2017, will no longer hold.

FECAFOOT's  President, Tombi A Roko Sidiki, replied to CAF that maybe PWC withdrawal is based on rumours of insecurity in Cameroon.

We observed that there was a huge rumour circulating today, indicating that the security of the members of the audit firm selected for the first inspection mission from August 20-28 in relation to the organisation of the 2019 AFCON, was at stake,” Tombi wrote to Ahmad Ahmad, CAF's President.
He went on to reassure both PWC and CAF members that the Cameroon 2019 organising committee “have taken all necessary measures to ensure their safety” during their stay.
Earlier this month,Ahmad, said Cameroon needed “to convince CAF” of its ability to host the 2019 Nations Cup which will feature 24 teams instead of 16 for the first time.
