Véron Mosengo-Omba is in Yaounde for a 48-hour mission. The secretary general of CAF has stepped on the ground of the political capital of Cameroon, late Monday afternoon. The head of the administration of the African football governing body is at the head of an important delegation. The delegation is made up of FIFA employees among others.
The inauguration of the new CAF office in Cameroon is on the agenda of this visit. But also a hearing in connection with the organization of the next African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2021. Veron Mosengo-Omba will notably meet with the president of the Local Organizing Committee.
The exchanges with the Cameroonian Minister of Sports will revolve around the new date of the draw of the tournament. Initially scheduled for June 25, it was postponed for "logistical reasons related to the Covid-19 pandemic," according to CAF.
Apart from the contours of the draw, the signing of the Framework Agreement between CAF and Cameroon, about the organization of the said AFCON, could also be on the menu of the visit. This is at least what the SG of CAF has suggested.
The visit of Veron Mosengo-Omba to Cameroon ends on Wednesday.
