"All the African diplomats from the participating countries will be visiting the village at 5 pm. We will take a decision at that time," a senior diplomat from a African country said. 

Earlier, Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi had assured that there will be "no discrimination" against the African countries in allotment of accommodation.
