“We have finally agreed with Football Kenya Federation on the new dates and the qualifiers will take place. We shall also re-do the draw to have two pools with four teams each, Gecheo is quoted by CECAFA’s website.
The new developments come at a time when some of the teams pulled out as the postponement of the event clashed with their league roster; Rwanda’s Scadinavian WFC being one of the teams to pull out.
The matches will be hosted at both Kasrani and Nyayo Stadium with the teams involved including Vihiga Queens (Kenya), Lady Doves WFC (Uganda), PVP FC (Burundi), Simba Queens (Tanzania), Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (Ethiopia), Yei Joint Stars FC (South Sudan), New Generation (Zanzibar), FAD (Djibouti).
