Malawian referees on Caf duty


Confederation of African Football (Caf) has assigned three Malawian referees a high profile game for the Confederation Cup this month.

Fifa referee Dennis Ngulube will take charge of a first round match in Burundi between hosts Ngozi FC and Zambian giants Zesco on the weekend of March 18.

A statement from Caf added that Ngulube’s compatriots Edward Kambatuwa and Hendrix Misinde will, during the match, work as first and second assistant referees, respectively.


Another Malawian, Duncan Lengani, will serve as a fourth official for the game at Bujumbura’s National Stadium.

Recently, Caf also assigned Malawian, Ishmael Chizinga, a Confederation Cup preliminary round game in Harare between Zimbabwe’s Ngezi Platinum Stars and Pamplemousses SC of Mauritius

Bester Kalombo, Bernadetter Kwimbira-Nzika and Moffat Champiti are among the few Malawians to have officiated in big continental and world events such as the Africa Cup of Nations finals and the Olympic Games.


The stunted domestic football standards and lack of local clubs’ involvement in international competitions also undermine Malawian referees’ progress.
