Niger, Angola, DR Congo, Congo Brazzaville, Angola, Kenya and Guinea are the other countries to bring their season to a halt.

However, the Fecafoot, Cameroon’s FA has confirmed that there will be no relegation but two top sides from the second tier will be promoted and thus expand the top division to twenty teams.
