Kenya and Zimbabwe have been thrown out of the 2023 African Cup of Nations qualifiers slated to commence next month.

The Confederation of African football says, as a consequence of having failed to have their suspensions by FIFA set aside, CAF has confirmed that both Kenya and Zimbabwe will not participate in the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations Cote d’Ivoire 2023 qualifiers.

Both nations were included in the official draw earlier in April 2022 on the condition that the suspension must be lifted two weeks before their first matchday.

Kenya and Zimbabwe, suspended for political interference, have not yet met the criteria required by the FIFA Congress as a prerequisite for lifting their suspension. As a result:

The following will apply as a result of their suspension – The two associations – Football Kenya Federation (FKF) and the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA), will be considered losers and eliminated from the competition.

Groups C and K will be composed only of three teams the order of the matches will be maintained in accordance with the match schedule that has been communicated to the teams after the draw.

The first and runner-up teams of those groups will qualify for the final tournament.
