Togo Ban for next two Africa Cups is a disgrace

January 31, 2010 | Filed Under: Blog, UK Box Update 

CAF ban togo Togo have been banned from the next two Africa Nations Cups after their withdrawal from this year’s competition in the wake of two members of their delegation being killed in an ambush, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said this weekend.What makes it even worse (CAF) slapped a $50,000 fine on the team also.

Two members of their delegation were killed in the ambush, which occurred on 8 February, two days before the start of the tournament.

The Togo government is furious over the decision, threatening legal action.

“This is a surprise decision and it means that people (Caf) have no consideration for the lives of other human beings,” Togo Interior Minister Pascal Bodjona told BBC Sport.

“This is insulting to the family of those who lost their lives and those traumatised because of the attack.

“We had two people dead and others suffered so if those people at Caf had any consideration for others I don’t think at this time this is a reasonable decision.

“We are awaiting the official notification and we are going to take legal action to resolve the matter.”

World football governing body Fifa declined to comment on the ban.Issa Hayatou, the head of CAF, entertains the notion that he could succeed Sepp Blatter as president of FIFA, lets hope not!
