Senegal/South Africa: Visa Denied to Senegalese Journalists!

Senegalese journalists accredited by the CAF for the coverage of the 29th edition of Afcon are still waiting for their visas at the Embassy of South Africa in Dakar.

According to Pressafrik.com, the diplomatic representative refuses "categorically" visas to the Senegalese journalists accredited yet.

The Togolese colleagues had also stressed the inexplicable delays in issuing visas.

Senegalese media professionals certainly will miss the press conference that day and the opening ceremony of the competition.
