Cameroon's power monger who has held tight to the Presidential position of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for 29 years, has lost the position in shame, to Madagascar Football Association head Ahmad Ahmad.
Issa Hayatou was dragged to court by Egyptian authorities for alleged corruption earlier this year, but as usual, bought his way out and came out clean, though the whole world including himself and his own household knew he was guilty.
The 70 year old lost his popularity, in a 34 -20 votes in favour of Ahmad Ahmad, during the 39th CAF Ordinary General Assembly that took place in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa, this Thursday, 16th March 2017.
Ahmad will become CAF’s seventh president since the continental body’s 60 years of existence.
During an interview after the great loss, Issa Hayatou boasted that while in Cameroon, he will never lack a job.
