ACCRA, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- Ghana on Tuesday unveiled the torch for the 13th African Games and announced a torch relay across five African countries to drive support for the Games.

Reks Brobby, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of the Local Organizing Committee for the Games, displayed the torch to the public, saying the relay would start from Accra, the country's capital, without giving a specific date.

"The torch will stop in Egypt and continue to Kenya, Cameroon, Nigeria, and South Africa," Brobby announced, adding it would then return to Ghana and go through some regional capitals before the opening of the Games.

The torch, made by a Chinese company, arrived in Ghana last week and was presented to Ghana's Ministry of Youth and Sports by the Confucius Institute at the University of Ghana, who helped facilitate the procedure.

The 13th African Games will kick off in Ghana on March 8.
