Dr Patrice Motsepe met with some Cameroon stakeholders in Yaounde on Friday, 17 September, to personally check the progress made with preparations for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
The CAF President visited the Olembe stadium which in the past days had been subject to controversial claims over the readiness of the facility. He inspected the structure himself before affirming that Cameroon was on a good footing.
One of the high moments of Motsepe’s schedule on Friday, was his meeting with Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute, representing President Paul Biya. The South African expressed joy “we had wonderful discussions, we are making good progress. And because our ambitions and our expectations are very very high, this ongoing discussion is to keep track of the good progress and the successes that we are making”.
Patrice Motsepe also commended the hard work of Sports Minister Narcisse Moelle Kombi and his collaborators. “Our Minister of Sports has been doing excellent work with the leadership of our Prime Minister and my brother Seidou, President of football in Cameroon” the CAF Boss said.
He declared that the AFCON will be a moment of pride for the people of Cameroon and Africa as a whole. He said the partnership established already gives him confidence that the competition next year will be very successful.
