The late Amr Fahmy, formerly the Secretary General of KAF, was considered the first to move stagnant water from under Ahmed Ahmed’s feet, and this matter contributed to the currently suspended “President KAF” who worked to oust Amr Fahmy from his position in “CAF,” which is what happened.

But Ahmed Ahmed canceled this agreement only 4 days after the conclusion of the deal, as he wanted Adidas to supply CAF with these tools.
The African Union canceled the deal at the request of Ahmed Ahmed, which made Puma expect a fine on CAF of 105,000 euros.
