HARARE – The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has said both Kenya and Zimbabwe will be excluded from the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers set to kick off next month. The two countries are currently banned by the football world governing body Fifa, over government interference.

Caf said, “The two associations; Football Kenya Federation (FKF) and the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) will be considered losers and eliminated from the competition.”

CAF had included them in the official draw earlier in April 2022 on condition that the suspension must be lifted two weeks before their first match day.

Kenya and Zimbabwe, suspended for political interference, have not yet met the criteria required by the FIFA Congress as a prerequisite for lifting their suspension.
