Cameroon have waited almost 50 years to host the Africa Cup of Nations, despite having played in more World Cups than any other African national team, but now that they’re finally hosting the tournament, not everyone is happy.

Cameroon’s AFCON has twice been postponed, amidst allegations of corruption, a separatist inspired civil war, and a much-maligned pandemic response.
