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.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
