The host cities for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations will be named later this month, according to local organising committee chief executive Mvuzo Mbebe.

The cause of the delay had been caused by government "who have to go through their own processes", Mbebe said on Wednesday.

Mbebe was speaking in Johannesburg where the SA Football Association (Safa) signed an organising agreement with continental soccer body the Confederation of African Football (Caf).
