CAF bans Ghanaian Ref for life

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has slapped 8 Ghanaian  referees with a life ban with  others receiving a minimum of 10 years suspensions.

On 5th August 2018, the Disciplinary Board of Confédération Africaine de Football held a meeting in order to decide over the cases of the referees named by media as being corrupted on CAF and Federation Matches.
