πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦ BREAKING: CAF elect South Africa's Dr Patrice Motsepe as new president

The Confederation Of African Football (CAF) has a new president after Dr Patrice Motsepe was elected at a live press conference event in Egypt on Friday.

As previously reported here on Futaa earlier this month, Dr Motsepe is replacing outgoing disgraced Madagascan former president, Ahmad Ahmad, who is banned for financial corruption and related charges.

Motsepe won Friday's election unchallenged, after the two other candidates Jacques Anouma and Ahmed Yahya, were advised by FIFA President Gianni Infantino, to settle for respective Vice President and Secretary roles.

Motsepe, who is one of Africa's top US Dollar Billoanaires, was the president of South Africa's 2016 CAF Champions League winners, Mamelodi Sundowns. The role will now be taken by one of his sons, Tlhopie Motsepe.

Meanwhile, CAF is expected to make a formal press announcement after the event in Cairo.
