Hayatou lauds Cecafa work



Caf president Issa Hayatou has lauded Cecafa’s work in the Eastern and Central Africa region.

Speaking after attending the congress in Kampala on Friday, Hayatou told superport.com why he had attended the congress.

“I got an invite to come and I have had meetings with the necessary parties I had to here in Kampala. There are issues that had to be addressed and have been done.”

“Cecafa is the oldest tournament in the continent and I appreciate the work they are doing. They are an example to the rest of Africa.”

He is scheduled to officially kick off the competition on Saturday and will be flanked by other officials like Burundi FA president Lydia Nsekera and Cecafa head Leodegar Tenga.

Kenya’s Minister for Sports and Youth Affairs Ababu Namwamba who was present at the event said: “When you look at Cecafa, you know there is talent. Take a look at the performance of a player like McDonald Mariga over two seasons ago, he is decent.”

On Kenyan football, he was diplomatic, “We have FKF who are doing a good job and we are rebuilding a team, we should be patient in waiting for the outcome and support the team.”
