Issa Hayatou Outgoing CAF president is angry after losing to Ahmad

Ahmad is the new leader of African football after ousting long-serving Caf president Issa Hayatou in a stunning upset at the organisation's congress in Ethiopia on Thursday.

Addis Ababa - Isikhulu senhlangano yebhola yaseMadagascar, u-Ahmad Ahmad, usekhethwe njengoMengameli omusha weConfederation of African Football ngoLwesine, ekhipha lowo obenguMengameli u-Issa Hayatou, nobeseqhoqhobale lesi sikhundla iminyaka engu-29.

Hayatou has comfortably won previous polls since succeeding the late Sudanese Abdel Halim Muhammad.

The 57-year-old Ahmad has been Madagascar Football Association head since 2003 and was a surprise pick for the CAF Executive Committee four years ago, defeated Danny Jordaan.

Hayatou's allies, also stunned by the result, suggested he had been blindsided by many of his former close colleagues but had also been too confident of victory.

It started with the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) when in 2015 the then president Sepp Blatter resigned over an ongoing corruption scandal ending his 17 year reign, he has subsequently received a 6 year ban from football.

Thankfully, we all know a year is a long time and plenty of things can change in the insane world of the WWE. But Lesnar and Reigns alone aren't the reason these plans are terrible .

Hayatou said the CAF would not "be dictated to by outside forces" with respect to the Nations Cup finals and that the schedule was determined by climatic conditions.

However, their Southern African counterparts, COSAFA (to which Madagascar subscribes), had declared they would throw their weight behind Ahmad. That would move it in line with other major soccer tournaments. He was also alleged to have sought payments in return for his vote in the controversial bidding for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

The emails from 2010 detail Ahmad reminding Bin Hammam that he promised money to help Ahmad's re-election campaign to lead the Madagascar federation.

"If people want change there is no other choice".

The Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) has admitted a new member into its fold - Zanbibar, at the continent's 55th General Assembly on Thursday, March 16. A region of Tanzania but with its own government, Zanzibar will be able to play in CAF's national team competitions and could pursue membership of Federation Internationale de Football Association.
