The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has finally made it clear that the former General Secretary, Amr Fahmy was dismissed for misconduct.

In a communication on the CAF website released late on April 16th it   said several decisions including the dismissal of Fahmy were made by the CAF Executive Committee that met in Cairo April 11-12th.

“Dismissal of CAF General Secretary Amr Fahmy for misconduct, and the appointment of Mouad Hajji, new CAF General Secretary,” said the communication.

However, following the dismissal reports have emerged that Fahmy reported a matter late last month on the conduct of the CAF President Ahmad Ahmad to FIFA’s Ethics Committee.
