CAF President Ahmad Ahmad has been slapped with a five-year ban by football governing body FIFA over the breach of several codes of conduct.
The 60-year-old President has been found guilty of a number of things including misappropriation of funds, accepting gifts and abuse of position.
- Arsenal condemn social media abuse of Nicolas Pepe
- Mohamed Salah to resume training after testing negative
- Liverpool thrash Leicester to level on points with Tottenham
In a statement issued by FIFA, they disclosed how the Malagasy used his position to trade with the sports faculties and even organize and finance the Umrah pilgrimage in Mecca.
Since last month, Ahmad denied any wrong doing after he had been fined 200,000 dollars following investigations into his conduct.
He will now have to challenge the decision with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) with the full verdict expected to be made after 60 days.
The Malagasy recently announced his intention to run for the second term come March next year but that will be dependent of the court case ahead of him.
