There will also be leaders from the different Africa's football associations, and the president of Liberia George Weah (who was once Footballer of the Year in the World), president of Rwanda Paul Kagame, and Mack Sall president of Senegal.

Also, Samuel Eto’o, Michael Essien, Mohamed Aboutrika, and Didier Drogba will be at the event and will likely play in a match dedicated to Senegal great Jules Francois Bocande who is now late.

“As you know, we are still new in the office. This is an opportunity to engage and to learn how others are doing it in their own countries. So I will be leaving on Sunday (yesterday) and returning on Wednesday,” Felton Kamambo told the Herald.
