FIFA bans CAF leader Ahmad Ahmad for five years
There will be no mercy, Ethiopia warns ominously, as the clock runs down on a deadline for surrender issued to Tigrayan leaders. Also, in a blow to a culture of impunity for men and militia of violence in DR Congo, a former warlord is sentenced to life in prison for war crimes. A military court found NDC founder Sheka guilty of murder, sexual slavery and the use of child soldiers. Finally, the head of African football has been suspended from the sport for five years over corruption. It comes just months before a vote on his re-election.
