The Chairman of the Moroccan Football Federation also served as the 3rd vice president of the African football federation since July 2017.
Rabat – The Executive Committee of the African Confederation of Football (CAF) appointed Moroccan Fouzi Lekjaa as its second vice president after the General Assembly of the confederation held on Thursday, July 18, in Cairo, Egypt.
Lekjaa, who is President of the Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF), served CAF as its 3rd vice president since July 2017. FRMF elected Lekjaa as its president in 2014.
CAF also decided to replace Tunisian businessman Tarek Bouchamaoui with Congolese Constant Amari as the head of the interclub competition organization committee.
The role of Bouchamaoui, one of the most important businessmen in Tunisia, was crucial at the CAF. Tunisians praised the businessman’s intervention in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League match between El Ahly and Esperance Tunis.
Tarek Bouchamaoui was also instrumental in imposing sanctions against El Ahly, who paid $20,000 in fines. Sanctions also included the suspension of Moroccan striker Walid Azaro for two games.
CAF Executive Committee also appointed CAF President Ahmad Ahmad as president of the organizing committee for the African Cup of Nations.
In January, CAF decorated the FRMF and its president with the Best Federation Award.
FRMF said that CAF’s recognition rewards the achievements of national football both in terms of technical results and at the level of governance and management.
