CAF President Dr Patrice Motsepe Donates Half a Million Dollars to Religious Communities in Cote d’Ivoire


In a heartwarming display of generosity and a commitment to fostering unity across religious and cultural divides, Dr Patrice Motsepe, the President of the Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF), has made a significant financial contribution to religious communities in Cote d’Ivoire.

Through the Motsepe Foundation, a hefty sum of USD 500,000 was split evenly between the Catholic Church and the Muslim Faith in the nation, showcasing a remarkable effort to support spiritual and religious endeavours in the region.

A Gesture of Unity and Support

Dr Motsepe’s philanthropic outreach was marked by personal meetings with leading religious figures in Cote d’Ivoire. His encounter with Cardinal Jean-Pierre Kutwã of the Cote d’Ivoire Catholic Church led to a donation of USD 250,000 to support the Catholic community. 


At the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, a rigorous doping control procedure was put into motion, affecting the Nigerian team significantly.

Similarly, a meeting with Cheikhoul Aima Ousmane Diakite, the President of the Superior Council of Imams, Mosques, and Islamic Affairs of Ivory Coast, resulted in an equal donation to the Muslim Faith. 

This balanced support underscores a profound respect for the diverse religious fabric of the nation and a desire to aid in their communal and spiritual activities.

Uniting Through Faith

Dr Motsepe’s actions speak volumes about his vision for unity and peace, transcending beyond the football field into the realm of faith and spirituality. 

His words resonate with a deep appreciation for the role of religion in society as reported by cafonline, “We are immensely grateful to the Catholic Church and the Muslim Faith for the crucial religious and spiritual work that they are doing amongst our people in Ivory Coast and on the African Continent and globally. 

“We are committed to working together with them and all Religious and Faith-Based Organisations in Africa and worldwide, and contribute to uniting all people from different racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds.”

This isn’t the first time Dr Motsepe has extended his philanthropy towards religious organizations. His donations during the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in 2022 to both the Catholic Church and Muslim Faith in Cameroon further illustrate a consistent effort to build bridges across communities. 

Accompanied by his wife, Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe, and key figures from CAF, Dr Motsepe’s latest gesture in Cote d’Ivoire continues to pave the way for a united and harmonious future, both in the realm of sport and beyond.
