The President of the Confederation of African Football Patrice Motsepe will be in attendance as Express face Nyasa Big Bullets of Malawi in the CECAFA Kagame Cup final.
The two sides face off on Saturday at 7pm at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es salaam, Tanzania.
Motsepe is already in Tanzania and on Friday, he visited Tanzania Prime Minister HE Kassim Majaliwa in Dodoma.
He also attended the CECAFA Extraordinary General Assembly at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Dar es Salaam.
Per CAF website, he called for co-operation amongst Member Associations to build a stronger CAF.
“As Africa, we must run our football affairs with dignity. While we might not have the financial muscles, we should get into meaningful partnerships,” Dr. Motsepe is quoted.
On Saturday, he is expected to be accompanied by CAF Secretary General Veron Mosengo-Omba, the President of the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) Wallace Karia, FUFA President Moses Magogo and CECAFA officials.
Motsepe, who replaced Ahmad Ahmad, returns to CECAFA region since May this year when he visited Kigali, Rwanda during the CAF Executive Committee meeting.
