There is no action for Harambee Stars as Caf moves to expel the Afcon classifier from Sierra Leone



Kenya now leads the Group with seven points, four more than the second placed in Ghana and six ahead of Ethiopia, who are in the fund

The African Football Confederation (CAF) has ejected the long-awaited Kenama vs. Afame from Sierra Leone.

Both teams started up in the return match of Group F on November 18 but Caf moved to leave the stage due to the fact that Sierra Leone is still suspended by CAF.

An FKF senior officer confirmed exclusively to Goal who received an email from CAF confirming the same. "Caf launched Kenya against the set of Sierra Leone bindings for November 18, while the latter is banned by FIFA."

FIFA took the step to suspend Sierra Leone on October 5, 2018, following what they called the government interference. The Sports Ministry of Sierra Leone suspended the president of SLFA, Isha Johansen, for allegations of corruption, which made FIF take action.

The African side received an ultimatum to make sure things were returning to normal and the national team continues with the trip at the end of Afcon, but they all fell into deaf ears.

As a result, Sierra Leone lost its Group F at home and away from the matches against Ghana. The match against Kenya next weekend will not be played either by putting the campaign of Sierra Leone in the end of Afcon in 2019 in serious problems.

While standing, Kenya leads the Group with seven points, four more than the second placed in Ghana and six ahead of Ethiopia, who are in the bottom.
