FUFA president Denis Obua and his Tanzanian counterpart, Alhaji Muhiddin Ndolanga are favoured to take over from CECAFA’s long-serving Farah Addo who resigned Friday, citing his keen interest to lead Somalia as country’s president.
Obua’s name was high among 20 delegates who attended CECAFA’s extraordinary congress in Nairobi. Delegates said the Ugandan had the experience and ability to lead the body.
Sources at the meeting indicated that Addo was in favour of Obua taking over though he remained non-committal when asked whether he would throw his weight behind a particular candidate of his choice.
The Somali has up to May 15 to officially call it quits. He was facing a two-year FIFA ban for his disparaging remarks against FIFA president Sepp Blatter during the 1998 elections.
The person to take over from Addo will be known August 16 during another extraordinary congress in Zanzibar at the under-19 tournament. Ends
