Egypt has been announced as the host of the 2019 African cup of nations which will hold between June 15 and July 13 after Cameroon was stripped of the hosting right due to delay and slow pace of event preparations.

This was announced by Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Ahmed Ahmed in Dakar on Tuesday after Egypt 
received more votes from the executive committee than South Africa. 

This will be the fourth time the event will take place in Egypt after hosting in 1974,1986 and 2006

The emergency committee of the African Football Confederation (CAF) met Saturday in Lagos and unanimously decided to give Morocco the green light ahead of Equatorial Guinea. A third candidate, Ethiopia, was not considered because it did not provide a letter of guarantee from its government.

Original hosts Kenya fell behind with five-venue preparations for the biennial 16-team tournament, which runs from January 12-February 4, leading them to be stripped of the hosting rights last month.

Morocco have not hosted a senior CAF competition since the 1988 Africa Cup of Nations.
