JOHANNESBURG. — FIFA presidential candidate Tokyo Sexwale will seek continent-wide support in a final bid to revive his ailing election campaign at a meeting of African football leaders tomorrow.
Sexwale was grilled on Tuesday by high-ranking officials of his home South African Football Association (SAFA), who had earlier endorsed his candidacy in the race to replace Sepp Blatter. SAFA wanted answers about Sexwale’s election tactics and the unconvincing progress of his campaign after they had backed his bid for the presidency and helped him obtain the five nominations needed to stand to replace Blatter. — Reuters.
