The 2019 list of FIFA referees for Kenya has a new face in assistant referee Samuel Kuria, in the only change from the previous one, which had Aden Marwa.

Marwa was in July 2018 banned by CAF after being implicated in a bribery scandal ahead of the FIFA World Cup for which he had been selected among the match officials.

Kuria’s confirmation takes the list of male officials on the list to 11; six of them being assistant referees and five center referees.

The ladies’ list remains unchanged.

Full list:

Men – Center referees

Israel Mpaima, Davies Omweno, Andrew Juma, Anthony Juma and Peter Waweru

Men – Assistant referees

Gilbert Cheruiyot, Joshua Achilla, Samuel Kuria, Tony Kidiya, Oliver Odhiambo and Steven Yiembe.
