Mulindwa tallied three against Jaffar’s six that couldn’t hand him the seat to replace his former Boss Leodegar Tenga of Tanzania.

Mulindwa has been CECAFA Vice President for the last two years.

What looked like a surprise according to Mulindwa’s statement after the voting was that none of the CECAFA Big members was appointed at the assembly a move he described as a blow to the region’s football development.

Meanwhile two FIFA Presidency aspirants in Jerome Schampaign and Prince Bin of Jordan attended the CECAFA General assembly.

Jerome Schampaign pledge to Africa was to add an extra two more slots for the continent at the World Cup final tournament.

For Prince Bin Ali his first mission for Africa is to upgrade African leagues and market them internationally plus handing the continent 3 more slots in World cup.

President elect, Jaffar takes over the CECAFA seat amidst a crisis that none of the body’s member has ever progressed to the prestigious World Cup final tournament.
