Uganda's top football official Moses Magogo has been co-opted as a member of Confederation of African Football (CAF) Executive Committee, and placed on three other working committees.
Reports from Bahrarin, where CAF held an Extraordinary General Assembly Congress under the new leadership of Ahmad from Madagascar, indicate FUFA president Magogo was also placed on three other committees - Committee for Revision of Statutes, Organising Committee for Women's Football and Organising Committee for Futsal and Beach Soccer.
In wide ranging changes, Zambian legend Kalusha Bwalya was named Chairman of the CAF Technical and Development committee, while the continental body's first and second vice-presidents and another representative to the world soccer governing body FIFA were named.
"In recognition of the progress of football development in Uganda and contribution towards African football, I have been appointed a member of the CAF Executive Committee 2017 - 2021 and a member of the CAF Reforms Committee," Magogo said soon after the decision had been taken.
Magogo was seen to be at the forefront of global football politics last year as Gianni Infantino campaigned for the top job in FIFA. After the election, FIFA president visited Uganda in February, on a trip that many said was a campaign to unseat then CAF president Issa Hayatou. Hayatou was beaten.
