The officials of the Egyptian football association walked out of the Confederation of African Football meeting of April 6, in Cairo, Egypt, not because they were in the same group with Nigeria, Tanzania and Chad. The officials left the hall momentarily because they were protesting against the belly dancing performance.
The dancer, Dina Talaat put up a spectacular performance at the opening ceremony of the CAF ordinary general assembly in Cairo.
But the delegates from the host country Egypt, including the youth and sport minister Khaled Aziz stayed in an adjoining hall inside the hotel until the end of the performance. The association spokesman said they were surprised to have this performance at such an international event.
Mrs Talaat however, said ‘I was not the only dancer in the party. There are other dancers from other nationalities too. I honoured Egypt and presented a respectable performance.’
The FIFA president Sepp Blatter was also in attendance and he said ‘for me Africa is my home and I have a strong affinity for African and African football. I always had a dream of a world cup in Africa and it has come to pass.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
