Popular African Referee Kicked Out Of World Cup After pictured Receiving Bribes


After receiving the paltry sum in bribery, Aden Marwa lost at least Sh2.5 million for appearing in the World Cup, Goal.com reports.


Kenya Aden Marwa's referee, who was on his way to the 2018 FIFA World Cup, has been implicated in a bribery scandal.

Marwa was one of the line judges who had to officiate in Russia before the BBC broadcast an exhibition that showed that the famous Kenyan blower allegedly received a bribe of $ 60,000 before a game.

Marwa, a teacher of Mathematics and Chemistry at Komotobo High School in Migori County, was contacted by a journalist who posed as a Ghanaian soccer official during the African National Championship.

After receiving the miserable amount in bribery, Marwa lost at least Sh2.5 million for appearing in the World Cup, in addition to Sh200,000 per game officiated after FIFA confirmed that the referee will not travel to Russia.

The president of FKF, Nick Mwendwa, promised to investigate the problem. "We only learned about the accusations through the media.

"As such, we want to let due process take its course, it is important to keep in mind that, as a federation, we have not yet received any complaint regarding the party's official, whether in writing, verbal or implied."

Marwa, 41, first appeared at the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup and was among the four other referees chosen from Africa to officiate at the world's biggest soccer show that will start on June 14 and end the 15th of July.

It is contrary to the Fifa code of conduct for any official or official of the party to accept a bribe.
