Caf acts as if they do not care about Togo

I FOUND it disturbing that the Confederation of African Football failed to allow Togo time to mourn and return to the Africa Cup of Nations after the Togo national team was ambushed in Cabinda, resulting in the death of three people.

Caf is behaving as if it was the Togo team's fault that they were attacked when, in fact, it was Caf's fault for failing to stage the tourney in a politically stable country.

I think Caf, if their respone to the attack is anything to go by, does not care about the players' wellbeing.

The Caf leadership should have applied their minds and bent their rules in these exceptional circumstances to show that they care. The way they handled this entire incident embarrasses African football
