Harare – The president of the Royal Moroccan Volleyball Federation, Bouchra Hajij, has become the first female head of the Confederation of African Volleyball Federations (CAVB) after beating Egypt’s Amr El-Wani to the post in elections held last weekend.

Hajij secured 42 votes to El-Wani’S 12 in virtual polling that came after the CAVB congress.

Six vice-presidents were elected from the continent’s regional zones, with Zimbabwe’s Fredrick Ndlovu getting the nod to represent Southern Africa.

Ndlovu is a former Zimbabwe Volleyball Association president and has been involved in developmental programs in his country and across the region.

Meanwhile, Mozambique’s Khalid Cassam is the new Zone V1 president.
