FORMER FUFA President Lawrence Mulindwa has bounced back in football administration as a CECAFA Executive Committee member.
In an election conducted at Hill Park Hotel in Nairobi City on Tuesday, Mulindwa collected 12 votes while Sudan’s Tariq Atta picked 10, Abdigani Said Arab from Somalia 9 and Raoul Gisanura (Rwanda) polled 8 votes to fill the four CECAFA executive positions. Seven candidates contested the exercise.
The exercise was presided over by FIFA official Emmanuel Maradas under the watchful eyes of the continental soccer body CAF executive members Magdi Shams Eldin and Kalusha Bwalya.
CECAFA president Leodgar Tenga's chairmanship of the regional soccer governing body runs out in 2015.
The 2013 CECAFA Senior Challenge competition rolls off on Wednesday with Zanzibar taking on South Sudan while hosts Kenya faces Ethiopia in the second match of the day. Uganda Cranes will open their campaign to defend the title with a match against arch rivals Rwanda at Machakos on Thursday.
