Africa: Controversy over the Presidency of the Confederation of African Football

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, Citizen Media, Governance, Sport

Ouédraogo [1] of Ouagadougou wrote the following on mondoblog.org [2] :

The Confederation of African football adopted a shameful regulation during its general meeting on Monday, September 3, 2012, stipulating that only members of the Executive Committee may run for President of the governing body of African football. A settlement which eliminates, in theory, the main competitor of Issa Kilipytiboe from the next scheduled election in March 2013, Ivorian Jacques Anouma.
