Kenyans have descended on social media to vent their anger at the government and Football Kenya Federation, after the country was stripped of the rights to host the CHAN 2018 Africa Nations Championship.

The Confederation of African Football (Caf) announced the decision following an executive meeting in Accra on Saturday.

Caf President Ahmad Ahmad said Kenya lacks the required sports infrastructure to host this 16-nation three week football competition.

The security situation in the country due to the impending presidential election due on October 26 and the uncertainty surrounding the repeat poll was cited as pne of the reasons behind the move.

The announcement led Kenyans to vent their frustrations with the #CHAN2018 hashtag trending on social media on Sunday.

Here are some of the sampled views:
