Africa never stops to surprise me. Sometime I wish I could just wake up from the nightmares of African governments and organisations.
“Togo have been banned from the next two Africa Cup of Nations following their withdrawal from this year’s tournament. The Confederation of African football (Caf) also fined the Hawks $50,000 for quitting the competition in the wake of a gun attack on the team bus in Angola“-BBC
CAF has gone crazy.
It is Togo who should be seeking legal action against CAF and the Angolan government for not providing adequate information about security in Angola.
Seriously I am short of words to express my disappointment in CAF. Whoever made the decisions is completely insane and out of his or her mind.
What are we going to do about the people who lost their lives? Some families will never be the same again as a result of the avoidable tragedies in Angola which was completely the fault of the Angolan government and the recklessness of CAF.
Togo should ignore the fine and even withdraw (by itself) from CAF competetition for life until CAF becomes “human” in nature and reasonable in thinking. This is nonsense and completely idiotic on the part of CAF.
