There will be no Ugandan referee to officiate at the continent’s premier football tournament – the 2019 Africa Cup of nations- that kicks off in June.
This was after CAF released a provisional list of 55 officials (both referees and assistants) that will undergo a test to screen the final lot.
Of the 56, Twenty-seven are centre referees and 29 Assistant Referees. They have selected from 33 of the 56 member associations on the continent.
“The selected match officials will take part in an intensive eight-day training camp, to decide on the match officials for the final tournament scheduled for 21 June to 19 July in the Egyptian cities of Alexandria, Cairo, Ismailia and Suez,” CAF announced.
The tests, both medical and physical, will be carried out in Rabat, the capital city of Morocco in North Africa.
Louis Hakizimana has been chosen from Rwanda, Pacifique Ndabihawenimana (Burundi) and Kenyan Peter Waweru are the only ones chosen from East Africa.
