CAF President, Ahmad queried over television contract
CAF President, Ahmad Ahmad and vice, Constant Omari have reportedly been queried over a revised television contract.
New York Times, on Thursday, reported that new investigations have begun on the football governing body in Africa, CAF.
The two top football officials in Africa are to explain why they agreed to revise a television contract in a way that appeared to benefit a commercial partner over CAF.
Both Ahmad and Omari have been asked by FIFA to provide details about amendments to the television contract with the marketing company, Lagardere Sports.
The changes to the deal, which covers all of the region’s top club and international competitions, have the potential to move millions of dollars in losses from Lagardere Sports onto the books of the African football body, according to documents reviewed by The New York Times.
The new investigation is just the latest problem for Ahmad, who was briefly detained last year by French authorities investigating allegations of embezzlement and who faces a separate FIFA ethics probe involving complaints of sexual harassment by several female employees and consultants.
