Kenya’s women soccer team’s, Harambee starlets, hopes of participating at this year’s African Women Cup of Nations, AWCON, have been thwarted. This is after the Court of Arbitration for Sport, CAS, rejected an application by the Federation of Kenyan Football, FKF, to have an earlier decision by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to reinstate the Equatorial Guinea team, at the expense of Kenya, overruled.
