CAF has handed Ghana a place at the African Women's Championship in Nigeria.
The executive committee of Africa's football governing body awarded the final qualifying tie to the Black Queens on Tuesday after Congo failed to turn up for the first leg encounter in Obuasi.
Congo were given a one-year suspended sentence as well as a fine of US$5,000.
Ghana will play in Group B where they face Mali, Cameroon and DR Congo.
The tournament will be staged between October 28 and November 12.
Nigeria has won every edition of the African Women's Championship since its inception in 1998.
