Bamako, Mali, June 25 (Infosplusgabon) - Mozambican Anibal Aurelio Manave was elected president of FIBA-Africa for a four-year term after the general assembly of African basketball's governing body held on Sunday in Bamako, Mali, sports sources told on Tuesday.

 


Mr. Manave succeeds Hamane Niang, whose term is coming to an end and is set to run for the post of FIBA-World president in China on 30 August.


Manave was previously a member of FIBA's Central Bureau from 2014-2019, and vice president of FIBA-Africa at the same time and president of FIBA-Africa Zone 6.


A former national team captain, coach and technical commissioner, he was president of the Mozambican Basketball Federation (FMB) from 1997 to 2005. In 2017, he was elected president of the Mozambican National Olympic Committee (CONM).


"I would like to thank all the national federations for the trust you have shown me and, above all, for believing in this noble mission of the President of FIBA-Africa", the new president of FIBA-Africa said just after his election.


The general assembly also elected new members of the Zone Office: Adel Eskandar Tooma (Treasurer), Fode Amara Condé, President of the Competition and Technical Council, as well as three co-opted female members: Justine Irung, Salma Ben Romdhane and Boineelo Hardy.
