The head of African athletics Hamad Kalkaba Malboum , disclosed that six countries from the continent, will bid to host the Championships.

“We are talking with Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco – those countries have the facilities,” said the Cameroonian.
“I have very positive sounds from some of them,” added the president of the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA).
Morocco is the only African country to have staged a leg of the Diamond League, the annual athletics series which runs from May to September around the world.
