Maybe if the teams in East Africa work very hard they will be there. But having regional qualifiers will do nothing for the development of football in Africa.
Why did Caf ban Thomas Nkono after the Nations Cup in Mali? He was the one attacked by the police.
Mr. Nkono came onto the pitch too early. When you organize a big competition like the Nations Cup, the police have instructions not to let any enter onto the pitch earlier than 45 minutes before kick-off. Mr. Nkono tried to get onto the pitch an hour-and-a-half before. He made a big problem with the police, and there was an altercation.
The match commissioner handed in his report, and Caf took the decision to impose a ban. Mr. Nkono was not correct. If you go to a country and don't respect the police, it is not right.
Mr. Nkono did not follow the regulations, and the police tried to block him from the pitch. He was not happy with that, and took against the decision. The police have their instructions to keep people off the pitch, and nobody can break them, not even the president of Caf.
Why was Jean-Claude Ganga, the corrupt former president of Anoca, invited to the opening game of the Nations Cup as a special guest of Caf?
John Boimah, USA
The IOC banned Ganga, but he is a free man. He came to see the football. Don't forget that he helped build sport in Africa. Caf didn't invite him, but when he turned up, we gave him the opportunity to see the game.
He didn't come to the congress, he had no official capacity. If he wanted he could go to the Olympic games - who can tell him he can't? He was not a special guest.
Why did Samuel Osei Kuffour not win the African Player of the Year Award 2001? He had a fantastic 12 months.
Nana Kwame Addo, Ghana
This is not my problem. I am not a member of the jury. It is journalists who make the decision. I don't have an opinion on the matter. I was called in to give the award, that's all.
Between Nigeria and Cameroon, who do you think is the greatest football nation in Africa, and who will do best at the World Cup?
Theophilus Cyril Udoh, Nigeria
They are both equal. Nigeria and Cameroon can both do well at the World Cup. Cameroon are a very young side though.
