The General Secretary of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Veron Mosengo-Omba attended the Annual General Assembly of Council of East and Central Africa Football Associations (CECAFA) in Arusha, Tanzania today.

Mosengo-Omba who represented CAF President, Dr. Patrice Motsepe commended the leadership and members of CECAFA for the good work in developing football.

Mosengo-Omba told delegates, “President Motsepe has, a few months ago, visited the CECAFA region because he recognises the role this Zone is playing in developing football. I know he wanted to be here but unfortunately couldn’t make it because of other commitments.”

He reiterated the willingness of Dr. Patrice Motsepe to strengthen capacity in the Zonal Associations and also support the new Schools Championship. “When Dr. Motsepe was voted President of CAF, the Zones featured high in his priority list.
