CAF hands life ban to Kenyan referee Aden Marwa over bribery

The Kenyan assistant referee Aden Marwa on Saturday banned from all football activities for life.,

He was kicked out of Russia World Cup in June after he was caught on camera taking a bribe while on CAF assignment in Ghana, will not be allowed to take part in any football related activities for the rest of his life.

Marwa was among match officials named in a documentary aired on BBC Africa last month where it was claimed he received 600 U.S. dollars from Ghanaian investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Marwa was as a result struck off the 63 assistant referees’ list for the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia.

Ten other referees were handed different bans of between two to 10 years while 11 were provisionally suspended pending their appearance in front of the board on August 5.

Three other Ghanaian referees Lathbridge Reginald, Bello Aboudou and Nantierre Eric were all given provisional suspension pending their hearing and appearance at CAF Disciplinary Board on Aug. 5.

The Kenyan was also in Fifa’s official list for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but was not given any game to officiate.

Marwa’s ban comes barely a year after his compatriot, Davies Omweno, was banned for three months by CAF for ‘poor performance’.

Marwa, who had been chosen to officiate in the Russia 2018 World Cup, denied any wrongdoing on his part.
