DeMbare say it is high time the Confederation of African Football stamped its authority by taking strong disciplinary action against referees who do not perform up to standard.


The comments come in the build up to Dynamos’ group stage match against TP Mazembe in the DRC on Sunday.

After falling victim to some questionable decisions in previous Champions League matches in North Africa against Esperance and Entente Setif, Dynamos team manager Nyika Chifamba said it is high time the Confederation of African football demonstrated its authority by taking the necessary corrective action.

“They need to do something in terms of disciplinary action against poor refereeing. It’s now up to CAF to do something about it because there’s now a general outcry regarding bad officiating.

“ The referee in our match against Esperance was very biased so was the one in Algeria against Setif. It’s not good for football,” Chifamba said.

Dynamos coach Elvis Chiweshe concurred with Chifamba calling the referees’ performance unjust.

“What’s happening is a little bit unfair and CAF need to do something urgently because it’s killing football,”said Chiweshe.

Dynamos lost 1-0 to Esperance in Tunisia after the hosts were awarded a dubious penalty, in a match the referee is also reported to have turned a blind eye to the Tunisian’s transgressions despite vehement protests.

Poor officiating once again worked against Dynamos when most decisions went in favour of Algerian champions Entente Setif almost two weeks ago raising questions about the standards of officiating in African football.
