Malawian Fifa Assistant Referee Clemence Kanduku will officiate at the 2021 Under-20 Africa Cup of Nations finals to take place in Mauritania between February 14 and March 6.

Kanduku is among the 35 African Referees that Caf has selected for the biannual tournament.


Football Association of Malawi (Fam) Referees Development Officer Maxwell Mtonga was delighted with the news, saying the experience that Malawian referees get at such international tournaments helps in improving their performance in local competitions.

“This is very encouraging because it shows the confidence that Caf has in Malawian referees because of their performance.

“The exposure and experience that he is going to get there will be shared with fellow referees back home, hence help improve our game,” Mtonga said.


Kanduku’s appointment comes at a time female Assistant Referee Bernadeter Kwimbira is making records at the ongoing African Nations Championship tournament in Cameroon.

Before the tournament, Kanduku and the rest of the selected referees were expected to attend a three-day refresher course from February 10-3 when they will undergo physical, theoretical and technical tests.
