The new Omicron Covid-19 variant has seen a number of countries impose certain travel restrictions, with some African nations included on the United Kingdom's red list once again.

"We can't keep spending time dealing with rumours," Siewe told BBC Sport Africa.

"We did not receive any other message or information from our leaders - nothing such as changing of dates or countries. We did not discuss such during all our last meetings."

"We are on site. We are working."

The tournament is scheduled to get underway on 9 January 2022, with the final scheduled for 6 February.

The Indomitable Lions will open the tournament against Burkina Faso, while Ethiopia take on Cape Verde later that evening.
