They do. It's morocco, everyone knows it's Morocco. CAF simply had to go through formality of final evaluation.

Did any of the Congo countries qualify with Ebola doing the rounds again? We know how Morocco feels about Ebola.
Morocco just can't catch a break

Only people who don't know Cameroon are surprised.
After 50 years in the most powerful positions, Biya has turned Cameroon into a massive S*&^ hole.
Biya has probably spent twice as many days living abroad than in Cameroon. What does that tell you about a country, when the President doesn't even live there?

Here is a typical example:
The Cup of Cameroon (similar to the FA Cup), which is held every year (December) has never had a fixed date known in advance. Because Biya is the one to decides on the date and he does so ... 2 days before.
It happens every year. Nobody knows the data of anything until Biya decides.
Biya believes the whole world functions like that. And his supporters always try to justify it.
He recently "won re-election" of the presidency with 70+ % of the votes. Of course everyone knows that it is a lie. But, what can people do? NOTHING.

People can always do something. If they are not ready to die then they are not ready to live.

Initially, I felt CAF was intent on taking the rights from Cameroon as revenge for CAF decisions on hosting rights of some countries in East and Southern Africa. However, I really have no problems with this decision given the crisis that is ongoing in the country. Let's now see if Cameroon will react by withdrawing its team from the AFCON 2019. Hope they do not pull that trigger.

I think this is partly a cameroon issue and also partly symptom of a bigger issue - i.e CAF and how the cup of nations has been restructured via the primary lens of politics and a secondary lens of revenue.
The nations cup did need restructuring and review to strengthen its brand. If you compare the 1994 edition to the 2017 edition across key areas you'll notice an overall decline (quality, pitch, brand). there is one exception - winning prize has increased but then again, when you account for inflation , it really hasn't increased and one will argue that in inflation adjusted terms, winning prize is flat or has decreased compared to 20 years ago. I think may agree that the 24 team idea is just awful!. I would have expected CAF to hold this tournament every 4 years or even 3 years , negotiate an even better sponsorship with Total, and pay out more to the winners AND also more to the footballing nations needing development (as this is the reason for a 24 person tourney)

Just the real truth. No hotels, no roads, no reliable internet for journalists, no credible stadiums, on top of all of that insecurity all over.

Great job CAF. Now is time for them to address their domestic issues.

We Africans are not able to even organize the most simple sports event that we so dearly love
No wonder a low IQ #$%@^&* like Trump calls our countries sh*tholes.
He probably has a point.

It is why I believe they waited till now. They gave Cameroon every chance. It is the right call.
