FECAFOOT Crisis: FIFA opens corruption case against Tombi A Roko
The world football governing body, FIFA has ordered an investigation into the accounts of the Cameroun Football Federation, FECAFOOT. FIFA sources have revealed that with the support of the ruling CPDM crime syndicate, the deposed president of the French Cameroun FA, Tombi A Roko manipulated certain accounts of FECAFOOT, despite being an illegitimate boss of the Cameroun football federation.
FIFA is aware that a court decision had prevented Mr. Tombi and his gang imposed on the Cameroonian people by former Minister Joseph Owona from operating bank accounts belonging to FECAFOOT. Behind the scenes of FECAFOOT, it is said that 6 billion FCFA was spent by the ousted administration on wages paid within the last 23 months with the lowest standing around 150,000 FCFA. There are other ongoing proceedings against the former president of FECAFOOT at the Special Criminal Court in Yaounde. His passport at one time was seized and one of his acolytes, former Canon of Yaounde legend, Jean Manga Onguene was forced to abandoned a forum in Malabo, Equatoria Guinea and escaped to Paris, France.
Some of the numerous acts of mismanagement and corruption labelled on Mr. Tombi dates back to his time as secretary-general of the federation. Last Saturday during a press conference, a desperate and frustrated Tombi A Roko said he respects and supports FIFA’s decision to set up a standardization committee at FECAFOOT.
“We take note of the establishment of a Committee for Standardization … We accept unconditionally and we accept it with good grace … We would like to say that the Committee for standardization is welcome in Cameroon.”
The disgraced Tombi reportedly read from the same script with the Minister for Sports and Physical Education, Bidoung Mpkwat who a day before the Tombi press conference said the Biya regime was ready to cooperate with FIFA and CAF for a return to serenity in Cameroonian football.
