Nkana pondering on CAF ruling regarding Ivory Coast trip

Nkana secretary Ken Mwansa says the club is   reflecting on CAF’s refusal to shift the venue for the 23rd August CAF Confederation Cup match against Ivorian club Sewe Sport from Abidjan amid the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

CAF has ruled that the crucial Group B match will go ahead as planned because no Ebola case has so far been reported in Ivory Coast.

Mwansa said Nkana are consulting various stakeholders on the ruling before deciding the way forward on the matter.

“There is nothing we can say as at now because we are still consulting. We will state our position on Friday,” he said.

FAZ on Thursday said it expects Nkana to travel to Ivory Coast as planned following CAF’s ruling on this matter.

Meanwhile, second placed Nkana must beat Sewe to advance to the semi-finals.

Group leaders Al Ahly have eight points, one ahead of Nkana while third placed Sewe sits on six points and Etoile du Sahel have five points from five matches played.
