Pay- Kwesé Sports will air all matches of the 39th edition of the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup. This news was confirmed by the Zimbabwe-based station, via Twitter. The tournament will last for two weeks and will officially kick off on November 25.
Kwesé’s entrance as broadcaster comes as a relief to sports fans in East Africa and beyond who wanted to enjoy the matches. Cecafa’s three-year association with South African, SuperSport lapsed in 2016. This will be the second regional tournament Kwesé is airing live all over the continent in the last three months, following the live production of the Cosafa Women Cup in Zimbabwe last September.
Cecafa secretary general, Nicholas Musonye, maintained on Wednesday that Kenya is secure enough to host the football tournament later this month. He said, “Kenya has always been a secure country. I don’t think our situation will affect anything.”
