South African billionaire, Patrice Motsepe, has emerged as the new Confederation of African Football (CAF).

This was confirmed on Friday, during CAF’s 43rd Ordinary General Assembly in Rabat, Morocco.

Motsepe, who is the owner of South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns, was elected unopposed.

Africa’s ninth richest person will replace outgoing Ahmad Ahmad, whose three-year reign promised much, but was stained by accusations of nepotism, corruption and embezzlement.

He was suspended in November after being found guilty of breaching four separate articles of Fifa’s ethics code and banned from all football-related activity for five years.

The 59-year-old Motsepe’s ascent to the pinnacle of African football comes following intervention by Fifa president Gianni Infantino, who reportedly supervised the brokering of a deal with the other candidates.
