After their third day of mission, the team of CAF inspectors visited the accommodation sites.
The inspectors of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) are on a mission in Yaounde since Monday, July 25, 2016. After three days of inspection in hotels selected by the Local Organizing Committee of the Women Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2016 the first outcomes are more or less satisfactory. Although many redevelopments are still needed.
Indeed, CAF experts demanded that many things be reviewed in some hotels. “One of the recommendations is to the Twin rooms,” says Nicolas Tchobang, the Director General of the Mont Febe Hotel in Yaounde. A requirement rather difficult to hold for this establishment of sixty years of existence, says La Nouvelle Expression of Thursday, 28 July 2016. Nevertheless, “there is nothing complicated about it. AFCON will not play tomorrow. We still have time to put it all in place, ” says the Director.
On the side of the Djeuga Palace, it is the same story. Although on this side, they just talked about adjustments. “For now, we know what we must do. We are already making adjustments. Also readjusting meeting halls, “says the sales manager of this hotel. Indeed, sources reveal that the CAF wants Meeting halls of at least 150 seats for the team hotels. Regarding hotels for referees, they must have at least 200 seats, the newspaper said. But above all, high-speed internet connections for each hotel, with the possibility of connection by WiFi.
Despite the abundance of quality hotels in Yaounde, much remains to be done to fully meet the inspectors of CAF. Hotel establishments thus have three months to get to the page.
