FIFA bans CAF president, Ahmad for five years

FIFA has banned CAF president, Ahmad Ahmad, for five years over allegations of corruption.

The world football governing body announced the decision in a statement on Monday.

Ahmad has been CAF president since March 2017 and was standing for re-election, when FIFA banned him for “governance issues”.

In their statement, FIFA said that Ahmad had, “breached his duty of loyalty, offered gifts and other benefits, mismanaged funds and abused his position as the CAF President”.

Ahmad has also been fined 200,000 Swiss francs ($220,000) by FIFA for the misdeeds, which related to “the organization and financing of an Umrah pilgrimage to Mecca,” and his involvement in CAF’s dealings with a sports equipment company.
