Cecafa Secretary General Nicholas Musonye told Times Sport through email yesterday that the winners will pocket $15000 while the first and second runner-ups will bag $10.000 and $5.000 respectively.

Musonye also confirmed that Nigeria has been replaced on the fixtures by Malawi who has already confirmed their line-up.
