    According to secretary general of Football Kenya (FK) Limited, Sammy Obingo,
    the East African nation will put in a bid to stage Africa's biggest football competition
    for the first time.

    "We are discussing with the Kenya Government on the hosting of 2016 Nations Cup,"
    announced Obingo.

    In 1996, Kenya was slated to host the biennial tournament only to withdraw
    at the last minute, citing poor finances. South Africa then replaced the Kenyans
    as host.

    However, Obingo said he is very optimistic that Kenya will win the right to host the
    16-team competition because the country has been able to generate great financial
    support from sponsors that will support such a competition now.

    Angola will host the 2010 Nations Cup while Equatorial Guinea and Gabon
    play host to the 2012 edition.

    Libya will then stage the tournament for the second time in 2014
