Confederation of African Football, CAF on its website says Sierra Leone has been disqualified from the 2019 African Nations Cup, AFCON qualifiers.
The continental football governing body said its Executive Committee, at its meeting on Friday in Accra, took the decision after reviewing the case of Sierra Leone in the qualifiers.
It went on to say that the development would now result in a group of three teams in Group F of the qualifiers.
The absence of the country will place Kenya at the summit of the group’s table with seven points, with Ghana following closely on six and Ethiopia with a single point.
FIFA had in November suspended Sierra Leone from international football because of government interference in the running of the country’s football association.
This was after the country’s Anti-Corruption Commission barred two leading Sierra Leone Football Association officials from the governing body’s offices.
