Referee to officiate CAPS United’s game against Al Ahli Tripoli was once suspended for 3 months by CAF

Kenyan referee Davies Omweno, who will officiate Caps United’s CAF Champions League match against Libyan side Al Ahli Tripoli at the National Sports Stadium tomorrow was once suspended for three months by CAF in November 2016  following a complaint by Libya, who had lost 0-1 to Tunisia in an African 2018 World Cup qualifier with Libyan coach Jalal Damja blaming their loss on poor officiating.

In that game, Libya had a 10th minute “goal” disallowed for offside, while Tunisia scored through a last minute penalty. CAF referees’ committee cited poor performance, wrong positioning and movement, incorrect identification of fouls and failure to administer some disciplinary sanctions as reasons for Omweno’s suspension.
