African football body Caf in disarray, audit reveals – Citi Sports Online


Football’s governing body in Africa has been shown to be in a state of disarray, an audit has revealed.

The investigation into the Confederation of African Football (Caf) questioned the body’s accounting, its governance, and its payments.

Amongst other details, the audit, carried out by Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC), found that:

  • Caf’s accounting was “unreliable and not trustworthy”
  • Some 35 of 40 large payments, totaling $8.3m, were “unusual”
  • Caf is “understaffed” with an “overworked” and “demotivated” workforce
  • Caf’s presidential office was “directly involved” in the controversial decision to employ Tactical Steel, a little-known gym equipment manufacturer
