Harambee Stars qualify for Afcon following Comoros ban

Harambee Stars

The Star has exclusively reported that Kenya has qualified for the 2020 AFCON following CAF’s decision to ban Comoros from the competition for allegedly falsifying a Covid-19 report which claimed Kenyan players tested positive to the disease.

The decision was communicated on Wednesday afternoon by CAF secretary general Véron Mosengo-Omba, a day after Football Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa raised an alarm that the issue had gained root in the competition.

Reports came up that four Kenyan players would miss the match on November 15, 2020 in Moroni after the Comoros federation claimed they had returned positive results hours before kick-off.

According to CAF, the doctors who conducted the tests erred in their judgement hence opted to award Harambee Stars three points from the subsequent match with Comoros effectively relinquishing points earlier awarded.

Following the decision, Harambee Stars now comes at the second position in Group G with 10 points, two behind leaders Egypt. Comoros replaces them at the second position on six points while Togo comes last on two points.
