Mosengo-Omba is CAF General Secretary


World football governing body FIFA, on Saturday, confirmed that Véron Mosengo-Omba would leave his role as Chief Officer of the FIFA Member Associations (MAs) division with immediate effect.
FIFA said he would consequently take on the position of CAF General Secretary.
Mosengo-Omba initially joined FIFA in 2016 as Director MAs with responsibility for Africa and the Caribbean.
He subsequently spent the past two years supporting all FIFA 211 MAs to implement the FIFA Forward development programme.
Mosengo-Omba also managed relationships with all FIFA MAs and continental confederations in his role as Chief Officer of the division.
A native of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR Congo), Mosengo-Omba was particularly involved in supporting the 54 African MAs in their FIFA Forward projects.
He also helped in the development of youth and women’s football throughout the continent, and in the recent implementation of the FIFA COVID-19 Relief Plan.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino and FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura issued a joint statement expressing their gratitude for the work Mosengo-Omba has overseen at FIFA.
“On behalf of all of FIFA, we will like to thank Mosengo-Omba for his excellent work and wish him the very best of luck in his next challenge as CAF General Secretary.
“FIFA also looks forward to working with him on future projects in helping to project African football to the summit of world football.”
