Malawian elite female referee, Bernadettar Kwimbira-Nzika, continues to underline her class after passing the referee’s fitness test in Rabat, Morocco.
Kwimbira-Nzika is taking part in a five day Video Assistant Referee (VAR) Course in preparation for the 2020 African Nations Championship to be hosted by Cameroon next month.
Football Association of Malawi (Fam) Media and Competitions Director, Gomezgani Zakazaka, said Kwimbira-Nzika’s exploits were good for the nation.
Zakazaka said the highly rated referee did not participate in the fitness tests that her fellow Malawian referees did last month back home as she was set to be tested in Morocco.
“She is one of the three female referees, alongside Ethiopian referee Abebe Lybia Tafesse and Nigerian Assistant Referee Mimisen Iyorhe, out of 41 referees who are taking part in the course,” he said.
National Referees Instructor, Moffat Champiti, hailed Kwimbira-Nzika for her exploits.
“It shows she knows her goals and works hard towards attaining them. During the Physical Fitness Test in Blantyre she came to prepare and interact with her colleagues. So she was in the right frame of mind when she left for Morocco,” he said.
