According to a draw conducted by CAF yesterday, a total of 47 African teams will battle it out for the 15 slots available for the showpiece, to join hosts Ethiopia.

The East African Zone will thus see eight nations: Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Sudan, Burundi, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Somalia, battle it out for two slots reserved for the region..

Kenya will face off with Burundi in the first round. Should Harambee Stars prevail; either Tanzania or Sudan will be the only obstacle to Kenya’s maiden appearance at the tourney. The qualifiers’ dates will be announced by CAF at a later date

Kenya could have made her bow in the competitions last year at home after they had earned the hosting rights but delay in completing match venues saw CAF strip Kenya of the hosting rights.
