FKF to appeal Equatorial Guinea decision

Football kenya Federation (FKF) is set to appeal the decision of Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) who reinstated Equatorial Guinea to play the Africa Women Cup of nations set for Ghana mid November.

The reinstated Equatorial Guinea will lock out Harambee Starlets for the continental football show and FKF chairman Nick Mwendwa said they will file a case at the Court Of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) seeking to overturn the decision to bar Starlets from competing at the continental championship.

This after Caf on Wednesday reversed its decision to replace Kenya with Equatorial Guinea at the biannual showpiece.

Equatorial Guinea defeated Kenya 3-2 on aggregate to qualify for the Cup of Nations competition in June 2018, but Kenya successfully filed a protest at Caf seeking to disqualify the Central Africans from the competition on the basis they had fielded an ineligible player namely Anette Jacky Messomo.
