Africa Cup of Nations: The Aftermath

Was Angola just not ready, or was it a colossal failure from the CAF ( African Football Confederation) & Organizing committee (COCAN) ?

It’s a long debate with arguments on both sides that might surge again if such a “drama” was to happen in South Africa this summer. The loss of human life at an event to celebrate peace and fraternity is a reality check for all. A brutal one at that !

But looking back after all the events unfolded, this is probably one of the worst P.R I’ve seen.  At first, COCAN said there was no shooting. Soon after after 3 people have died, they started to blame the Togolese delegation for taking a bus instead of flying to the venue. It is inconceivable that such a comment could be attributed to an official at this level.

The African football confederation president Issa Hayatou needs to get rid of his whole P.R or Communication staff.
