After 30 years at the Helm of African Football, Issa Hayatou has lost his Position to Madagascar’s Ahmed Ahmed, he lost by 14 votes. He got 20 votes while Ahmed Ahmed got 34 votes.
Ahmad is the President of Malagasy Football Federation, and not much has been heard from him over the years because he was a silent member of Caf’s Executive Committee.
He is from a northwestern Malagasy village and is the first Madagascan to run for the presidency of a continental confederation.
The Chairman of the Madagascar FA changed his stance when he revealed that he will be the one to take on Hayatou. 70-year-old Cameroonian, Hayatou has been fearing that Ahmad is pulling the strings from Southern Africa, especially when 24 African football association (FA) presidents met with Fifa president Gianni Infantino in Harare recently.
