Africa news reports that FIFA president, Gianni Infantino has been investigated by the Ethics Committee over allegations he meddled in the CAF elections that saw the end Issa Hayatou’s 30 year- reign.

According to the  report, Swiss prosecutor Cornel Borbely, who was chairman of the ethics committee’s “investigatory chamber”, had begun examining complaints that Infantino and the Fifa general secretary, Fatma Samoura, improperly sought to influence the CAF election in March, in favour of the current president Ahmad Ahmad.
It also says that the allegations are understood to include claims from senior figures in African football that Infantino and Samoura promised FA presidents, in a series of private meetings, that they could accelerate the payment of Fifa development money to their football associations, if the presidents voted for Ahmad.
Infantino is said to have manoeuvred for the ousting of the long-standing CAF president, Issa Hayatou, because he did not support him in the Fifa presidential election last year.

Borbely is also understood to have been in the early stages of an investigation into a further possible ethics breach by Infantino.
