Nicholas Musonye

The opening rounds of matches in the upcoming CECAFA Senior Challenge will be played in venues in Nairobi and Machakos, for logistical reasons.

According to the CECAFA Secretary General Mr. Nicholas Musonye, as quoted by The New Times, the other venues being prepared will only be considered for the knockout matches, a move he said gives times for the completion of their renovation.

Easier management

-For easier management and coordination, we will have the preliminary matches in Nairobi and Machakos then the other towns – Kisumu, Mombasa and Mumias – will host some knockout matches, Musonye said.

The tournament is scheduled to kick off on Wednesday 27 November.
