Coup in Guinea: Hearts of Oak’s Champions League game against CI Kamsar in limbo

Ghana champions, Accra Hearts of Oak’s CAF Champions League preliminary round fixture against CI Kamsar in Guinea next week is in danger after a reported military coup in the West African country.

The Military attempted a coup d’etat against President Alpha Condé and his government in the early hours of today.

“Since 8 am (local time), automatic weapon fire has been ringing in Kaloum, the business and administrative district and the headquarters of the presidential palace,” local media reported.

The newspaper noted that “the reasons for these shots which terrorize the population” are not known for the moment (11h UT).

“All the streets have been deserted, while heavy gunfire continues. The soldiers, visibly unhappy, empty the magazines of their weapons, while the inhabitants of Kaloum remain holed up, terrorized and worried”

Hearts of Oak are set to make a trip to Conakry to battle out with CI Kamsar in the preliminary round of the CAF Champions League first leg tie on September 12 before the reverse tie on September 19 in Accra.

Following the Coup d’etat happening in Guinea, Confederation of African Football (CAF) will be considering the safety of players and match officials due to unrest for a possible cancellation or change of venue for the fixture.
