“We’ll invest in football starting with grassroots/mtaani and community clubs.”

The former Prime talked after Senegal edged out Egypt on penalties to bag their maiden Afcon trophy in Cameroon.

Kenya graced the 2019 Afcon in Egypt after a 15-year wait, but failed to qualify for the 33rd edition in Cameroon.

The next Afcon is set for Ivory Coast in 2023.

The qualifiers for the finals are set to kick-off this year.
