Kamuzu Barracks Team Manager Francis Nthukwa Shaba has disclosed that the football in Malawi will not develop as many referees are incompetent.
Over the weekend,KB lost 4-1 to Nyasa Big Bullets at the Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday where referee Evidence Kananji awarded the latter a penalty when the game was at 1-1.
Following such decision made by referee it angered KB Team Manager who still believes that the penalty was not genuine.
” It is always like that, Central Region teams struggle when they travel to the south or to the north because the referees favour teams from the two regions unlike in the central regions where referees are always neutral and professional,” worried Shaba
Shaba has also asked Sulom to consider increasing the perks of referees which they receive per game to reduce cases of bribery.
“We make so much money at the gates and Sulom must increase the amount of money they pay the referees maybe they can be officiating professionally” he said.
