Seven football referees banned in Africa for corruption, 14 suspended.

Embarrassing...

Several of the referees have worked overseas in several championships such as world cup... This will put such a bad reputation on African referees, very sad.

CAF announced bans for 11 other match officials last month, including an assistant referee from Kenya who was supposed to officiate at the World Cup in Russia.

That official, Aden Range Marwa, was banned for life by CAF after he was filmed taking a $600 payment in a Ghanaian journalist's documentary. He is also being investigated by FIFA.

Throwing your career away for $600?! That’s...not the smartest. How much does football referees get paid in Kenya?

It's probably very seasonal but I mean if you're in an assisting role in the world cup you should make some. But still, corruption is ruining this continent 😭
