Eight candidates from across the CECAFA region competed for five seats of the CECAFA executive committee. The elected five executive committee members are: Abdiqani Said Arab (Somalia) Wallace karia (Tanzania), Aimable Habimana (Burundi), Ms Doris Petra (Kenya) and juneidi Tilmo (Ethiopia), while Moses Magogo of Uganda, Kourecha Ali Guedi of Djibouti and Vincent Nzamwita of Rwanda withdrew from the election contest.
The elected CECAFA members will serve for a four year- term in accordance with the newly amended CECFA constitution, while previously the mandate of executive committee members was only two years. "The amendment of the statues was unanimously adopted by CECAFA member states at our meeting in Khartoum on 30th of September this year” said Abdiqani Said Arab, who is also CECAFA vice chairman.
