REVEALED: How Federations Presidents voted at CAF elections Featured

On Thursday, Africa experienced a sudden tremor, which as a matter of fact, brought the continent's footballing fraternity to a halt.

 

Call it the "Surrender in Addis Ababa".

Issa Hayatou, president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for an era spanning almost three decades was finally deposed, suffering an unexpected (at least to him) defeat to Ahmad Ahmad, president of the Madagascar FA.

Before this shock, the Cameroonian, who began his CAF reign in 1988, had been challenged only twice in his 29 years of stranglehold, winning by overwhelming margins in 2000 and 2004.

At the congress, Ahmad was seen being given a kingly ride by his backers, most of them from Zimbabwe, to the podium after one more of the men who populated Fifa’s ruling body during its era of great expansion and shocking scandal had fallen.

The events preceding Hayatou's downfall was characterized by rare frenzied campaign, acrimony and fierce exchange of hostile letters which culminated in the grand display of stratagems for votes in Addis.

To many in the Ethiopian capital, the sequence of events were apparent, but Hayatou and his henchmen still had high hopes of yet another victory.

For the first time in CAF elections, some federation presidents mustered enough courage to declare their support for a Hayatou opponent.

Dr. Phillip Chiyangwa (President of Zimbabwe FA and Cosafa), easily credited as being the pioneer of the #HayatouMustFall campaign, opened the doors for others such as Nigeria FA's lionhearted president Amaju Pinnick, Liberias Musa Bility, to publicly campaign against the 70-year-old leader.

Going into the election, The Council of East and Central Africa Football Associations had announced their support for Issa Hayatou but it became apparent that some few members of the bloc decided otherwise.

Other blocs including Council of Southern African Football Associations (Cosafa) and a chunk part of the Western African States (WAFU) had declared their choice.

In the end, the much anticipated voting had to be done. Only 20 of the 54 member association believed Hayatou still had something to offer. The rest voted for freshness, change, relief and Ahmad.

Despite conducting the election via secret balloting, SportsObama.com, after an extensive checks, has been able to uncover how federation allegiances were pitched in Addis Ababa.
