Other winners included SA referee Victor Gomes, who was named as the Best Referee in Africa, while Liverpool star Mohamed Salah was named as the Caf Player of the Year and Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez won the Best Playmaker award.
The Caf Goalkeeper of the Year award went to Chelsea shot-stopper Edouard Mendy, Algeria manager Djamel Belmadi walked away with the Best National Coach award, while Lassina Traore was named the Best Young Player in Africa following his impressive exploits with Shakhtar in Ukraine.
Mosimane's award comes after Al Ahly veteran Ahmed Shobeir claimed Mosimane is set to renew his contract with the club.
“Mosimane wants to continue his successful run with Al Ahly, and the club wants the head coach to stay in his position.
“Pitso fully trusts his wife, who is also his agent, to represent him in the meeting, and the most probable outcome is Mosimane’s contract renewal with a 15% or 20% salary increase.”
On social media, many football fans agreed Mosimane deserved the award.
Here is a snapshot of some of the reactions.
