CAF: Vice-president Selemani disqualified from elections

THE Confederation of African Football (CAF) Vice President, Constant Selemani, has been disqualified from standing in March’s elections.

The FIFA Review Committee said, on Wednesday, that Selemani had failed the eligibility test for a position on the FIFA Council due to an “ongoing formal investigation by the Fifa Ethics Committee.”

The decision comes months after former CAF president, Ahmad Ahmad, was banned from FIFA for 5 years on allegations of abusing office, mishandling funds and trading gifts.

Five African seats on the FIFA Council will, however, be determined by the voting of the CAF member countries at the election.
