The Confederation of African Football, CAF, has appointed Tanzania Football Federation’s first vice president Athuman Nyamlani as one of the officials for the next year’s Nations Cup championship to be hosted by South Africa.
Nyamlani’s appointment has been sanctioned by CAF’s president Issa Hayatou.
The Nations Cup championship kicks off on January 19 through early February as 16 teams are lined up to compete.
CAF delegates, who will be responsible for various committees that would run and organize the tourney, have 148 people on board.
Nyamlani is one of three delegates who will be responsible to workout on appeals. Other delegates who join Nyamlani include Cameroon’s Prosper and Gabon’s Pierre-Alain Monguengui.
Nyamlani is one of the twelve members of the Confederation’s Appeals Board.
South Afrcia hosts the tournament after CAF withdrew hosting status from troubled Libya. This will be the second time for South Africa to host the Nations Cup since 1996 when the home side triumphed.
The biennial championship will now be stage on odd years, a new transformation adopted by CAF.
