Ghana Rugby President Herbert Mensah has been elected as the new President of Rugby Africa.
The election took place during the Rugby Africa Electoral General Assembly meeting in Cape Town, South Africa on Saturday 18 March.
Mensah will manage Rugby Africa affairs as its CEO for the next four years, succeeding outgoing Tunisian President Khaled Babou.
Mensah won the election by a wide margin, with 30 of the 32 votes cast at the convention. His only challenger, Andrew Owo of Uganda, received only one vote, while the other vote was deemed invalid.
Mensah’s candidacy was supported by Nigeria Rugby and Botswana Rugby, as well as French and English West Africa, South, Central and North Africa. His efforts to transform the game of rugby in Ghana have been recognized with this tremendous support.
In addition, Mensah received official approval from the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, and the government through the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the National Sports Authority, and other sports bodies.
