KALUSHA Bwalya is head of venue at the ongoing African Nations Championship in Morocco. This means the former Football Association of Zambia president is CAF head of Tanger, one of four host venues at the tournament. The other three hosting towns are Agadir, Marrakesh and Casablanca, which hosted the opening game on Saturday.
This is not the first time the 1988 African Footballer of the Year has taken responsibility, having been head of Aruba in the last CHAN edition hosted by Rwanda. The 2018 Total African Nations Championship is the 5th edition of the biennial tournament organised by CAF and exclusively features players from domestic leagues.
The CHAN kicked off on Saturday and runs until February 4. In February 2016, Kenya was announced as the host nation but CAF decided to change the host nation in September 2017 due to a lack of progress with preparations.
DR Congo were the defending champions but failed to qualify after losing to Congo Brazzaville on away goals rule.
