Posted on Sep 11 2019

Rwandan Martin Ngoga is among Soccer-Independent experts that have been appointed by World Football body, FIFA, to help reform the Confederation of African Football.

Ngoga, the Speaker of the EAC Parliament and also the deputy chairman of the FIFA Ethics Committee in charge of investigatory chamber, is on the CAF/FIFA Reform task-force which is also composed of Abdoulaye Diop (Mali), Hossam El Shafei (Egypt), Janet Katisya (Kenya) and Anin Yeboah (Ghana).

The CAF/FIFA Reform task force was inaugurated on Tuesday in Cairo, Egypt by jointly the CAF President Ahmad Ahmad and FIFA President Gianni Infantino.

The mission of the Reform Task force is to strengthen and accelerate the ongoing reforms at CAF.

The three main areas of cooperation identified under the joint CAF-FIFA roadmap which will be implemented by the Reform task force include: financial management, good governance and internal procedures.

Speaking at the meeting, CAF President Ahmad thanked the members of the task force for accepting to help CAF to accelerate its reforms programme in addition to their professional activities.

“There are obstacles that we faced that resulted in our request for assistance. That’s why we also need you, the independent experts. Together we will move forward.” President Ahmad said.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino expressed his full support to the work of the group: “If this CAF/FIFA cooperation succeeds African football will be even more envied around the world. You members of the task force are the foundation from which the future African football will be built. We count on your support, your passion & innovation.”

The key topics of discussion centered on auditing, underlining transparency in all of CAF’s operations, necessity for the highest standards of compliance, effective and professional organisation of competitions, growth and development of African football, as well as advancement and support for CAF’s 54 Member Associations.

The meeting also touched on football safety and security, African football governance and revenue generation for the continent’s competitions and events.

Meanwhile, the CAF-FIFA leadership and senior management will continue their activities today when they meet with the CEOs of some of Africa’s top football clubs to share ideas on improving the continental club competitions.
