Accused of corruption and sexual harassment on employees of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) by Amr Fahmy, the former Secretary General of the instance, Ahmad Ahmad, came out of silence in an interview with our colleagues.
“Fahmy lobbied Egyptian employees to make them say they were being harassed, which they refused to do,” said the Malagasy.
With regard to charges of embezzlement from the mainland, Ahmad Ahmad stressed that “all decisions are made in a collegiate manner”. And to add: “I am not empowered to decide alone. Buying cars? We felt that systematically renting vehicles was very expensive, hence the decision to acquire”.
In addition, the head of the CAF discussed the reasons for the dismissal of Amr Fahmy. “First of all, Amr Fahmy does not leave the CAF after amicable agreement, but this is a revocation, contrary to what I read or hear. And that the decision to separate from him had been made for several months. He had health problems, and that’s why we decided to wait. We have records on him. That’s why we decided not to keep it.”
