EA volleyball association declared void
The East and Central African Volleyball Confederation (ECAVCO) has been declared void and its operation illegal, so says the African Volleyball Associations’ (CAVB) vice-president, Amr Elwan.
The Ugandan Elwan said the ECAVCO is not affiliated to the African volleyball supreme body and it needs to be registered and follow all relevant procedures to win affiliation.
The volleyball official said the Tanzania Volleyball Association is legally recognized by the continental body and not ECAVCO.
He said the declaration of annulling activities of ECAVCO was passed by the leaders of African volleyball federations who attended the zone five conferences in Algeria recently.
The Algeria meeting was attended by representatives from international volleyball confederations and president of the Africa zone five chairman, Eman Osman Ahmed, from Sudan.
A resolution has been passed for ECAVCO to stop its activities instantly as it violates and interferes operations of CAVB.
A warning has been issued by CAVB to all officials of volleyball associations in the East African region to keep their distance from the unregistered volleyball body.
Elwan said punitive measures might be taken against officials who would act contrary to the passed resolution.
The official said the conference was informed that CAVB recognises Africa Zone Five Volleyball Association (FIVB).
Efforts to seek opinion from TAVA’s assistant secretary general George John were frustrated by unavailability of his telephone which was off air.
