Sabatia lands U-20 AFCON job

Kenya’s whistle-blower Peter Sabatia is among the three referees from the Council for East and Central Football Associations (CECAFA) region appointed by Confederation of African Football (CAF) to officiate the upcoming U-20 African Cup of Nations in Algeria.

According to mtnfootball.com, the Mumias-based referee will be accompanied by Hudu Munyemana [Rwanda] and another referee from Burundi.


Sabatia’s appointment comes barely a few weeks after two Kenyans, namely Sylvester Kirwa and Aden Marwa returned home after a splendid job in the 2013 AFCON finals in South Africa.

The 19th Edition of the event will run from March 16-30.
