It was gathered that a public relation consultant from Mali, Mariam Diakite, told The New York Times that she was fired for rejecting the CAF president sexual advances.
Diakite said; He (Ahmad) was refusing to let me work because I refused to marry him.
“When you are a president and you’ve got people whose dreams is to work in football and you say, ‘come to my room and I will give you a job.’ Is that not an abuse of power?”
The 34-year Malian revealed that the President informed her he was terminating her appointment because he had informed officials that they were in a romantic relationship and that it would be a conflict of interest if she carried on working.
Diakite, 34 said she had a confrontation with Ahmad in a hotel suite during a conference she was hired to organise in Rabat, Morocco in 2017.
