Rwandan referee Mukansanga emerges the best in CAF Elite B Course

Posted on Sep 12 2018

Rwanda’s top professional referee Salma Rhadia Mukansanga emerged the best referee in the just concluded one-week long CAF Elite ‘B’ Referees course which concluded on Tuesday at Sheba Hotel in Kigali City.

The Confederation Africaine de Football (CAF) organized a one-week course from September 7-11, 2018 for Elite ‘B’ Match Officials to update and refresh their knowledge and skills in the conduct of their duties last week.

After the course, Mukansanga emerged the best according to theory and practical evaluations of the course which was attended by 36 referees from different African countries.

The course attracted 16 men referees, 7 women referees and 13 assistant men referees. The course was targeted for Referees and Assistant Referees in the Elite ‘B’ category of the CAF Refereeing Development Grading System.

The objective of the seven-day course was to update the participants on the Laws of the Game as well as evaluate their fitness and technical abilities for upcoming major competitions.

The participants were taken through the usual Fitness tests whilst theoretical topics included Severity of Offences, Match Management, and Penalty Area Incidents amongst others.

Instructors were Jerome K. Damon (South Africa), Mohamed Guezzaz (Morocco), Aline Bitagoye (Burundi) and Mohamed Hussein Ali (Djibouti).

Mukansanga will this year, officiate the upcoming FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup which will be staged in Uruguay from November 13 to December 1, 2018.

The 28-aged old is the only centre referee picked from Africa and she will be joined by two African assistant referees namely; Kone Fanta Idrissa from Mali and Some Bielignin from Burkina Faso.

Mukasanga began her refereeing career in 2007 before becoming an international referee in 2012. Since then, she has officiated at major tournaments, including Africa U-17 and U-20 finals as well as senior World Cup preliminary games, 2015 All African Games, and the 2015 CECAFA women challenge that took place in Jinja, Uganda.

The 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup will be the 6th edition of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, the biennial international women’s youth football championship contested by the under-17 national teams of the member associations of FIFA, since its inception in 2008.

The tournament will be held in Uruguay from 13 November to 1 December 2018. North Korea is the defending champions.
