Confederation of African Football (CAF) General Secretary Véron Mosengo-Omba has heaped praise on Council of East and Central African Football Associations (CECAFA) for their activeness and organization.
Mosengo-Omba said this during last Friday’s CECAFA Annual General Assembly in Arusha, Tanzania where he represented CAF president Patrice Motsepe.
Apart from Kenya whose FA was recently suspended by the world governing body Fifa due to government interference, the meeting was attended by all the other 11 member states namely Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Djibouti, Rwanda, Burundi and Zanzibar.
“I thank the leadership of CECAFA because it is one of the most organized Zones and organize more events compared to other Zones,” said Mosengo-Omba.
He said that Motsepe is determined to strengthen capacity in the Zonal Associations and also support the newly launched Schools Championship.
While congratulating the continental body for successfully organizing the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon, former CAF Exco member and current Chairman of Tanzania’s Sports Council, Leodegar Tenga exuded confidence in the Wallace Karia-led CECAFA.
“I have faith in the CECAFA led by Wallace Karia. I know it will deliver for the interest of the region,” said Tenga.
“The well organized and competitive AFCON made me proud of being an African.”
