Khartoum, January 4, 2016--- Secretary General of the Council of East and Central Africa Football Association (CECAFA) Nicholas Musonye, said that the five- year Strategic plan announced at CECAFA’s executive committee meeting on Monday January 4th will put emphasis on youth/women football and technical Development.

In a communiqué, Mr. Musonye said that at the same time, the Council announced that CECAFA will stage four competitions this year and overhaul its statutes to ensure that there is discipline at all levels within the 12 member association.

The CECAFA executive committee meeting also nominated Somali’s Abdigani Arab Said as the vice chairman and Leodegar Tenga – the immediate Cecafa chairman as an Honorary Chairman.

The new executive committee was inaugurated in Khartoum, Monday in a ceremony witnessed by Sudan Minister for Sports and Youth, Several top Government officials and the Chairman of Saudi Arabia FA Ahmed Alharbi.

In his communiqué issued by Secretary General Nicholas Musonye from Khartoum, CECAFA will develop a master plan to ensure that youth and women football are fully integrated in all CECAFA activities starting this year.

CECAFA will also organize four technical courses this year. The Council Confirmed that Uganda will stage the Under 17 and women Championship this year, while Burundi will stage the Under 20.

The Kagame Club cup will be held in Zanzibar and the Senior Challenge Cup in Sudan. The New committee headed by Dr. Mutasim Gafar of Sudan will also sign an MOU with Saudi Arabian FA for an exchange programme especially on matters involving youth football.

On the overhaul of Statutes, the Council noted that the current statutes and regulations had served CECAFA well. But with then changing environment, the old statutes have to be overhauled to bring in dynamism and deal with indiscipline appropriately.

In the meantime, Musonye who spent the new year in the  Sudan visited North Gordofan State on Saturday and Sunday as a guest of the State Governor and launched the Sudan Youth Competition in El Obeid City, 600 miles North of Khartoum.

Musonye commented the Government and the people of the Sudan for their commitment and support to CECAFA over the years.
