The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has sacked general secretary Amr Fahmy after the Egyptian accused his boss Ahmad Ahmad of bribes and misuse of hundreds of thousands of dollars, according to Reuters reports.
Fahmy reportedly handed over a document to FIFA that 'investigates alleged ethics breaches' on March 31 and was relieved of his duties last Thursday - a day before the 2019 AFCON draw in Cairo.
The report allegedly accuses Ahmad of ordering his secretary-general to pay $20,000 (R280 000) bribes into accounts of African football association presidents - which included Cape Verde and Tanzania.
Ahmad has also been accused of costing CAF an extra $830,000 (R11.6 million) by ordering equipment via a French intermediary company called Tactical Steel.
Furthermore, it accuses him of harassing four female CAF staff, whom it did not name; violating statutes to increase Moroccan representation within the organisation; and over-spending more than $400,000 (R5.62m) of CAF money on cars in Egypt and Madagascar, where a satellite office has been set up for him.
