Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo Se­nior Sports Reporter

ZIM­BAB­WEAN ref­er­ees have once again been snubbed for a ma­jor con­ti­nen­tal tour­na­ment fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment of 11 ref­er­ees and 14 as­sis­tants for the 10th Women Africa Cup of Na­tions set for Cameroon.

The tour­na­ment runs from Novem­ber 19 to De­cem­ber 3 in the Cameroo­nian ci­ties of Yaoundé and Limbe. Only fe­male of­fi­cials will take charge of the tour­na­ment.

It has been a while now since Zim­bab­wean match of­fi­cials have been ap­pointed for big tour­na­ments, de­spite a num­ber of them be­ing on the Fifa ref­er­ees’ list.

Zim­babwe has 17 match of­fi­cials on the Fifa list, but a few have been ap­pointed to han­dle club com­pe­ti­tions, while some have never han­dled an in­ter­na­tional game since their sec­ond­ment to the elite list. Hosts Cameroon, Egypt, South Africa and Zim­babwe make up Group A, while hold­ers Nige­ria, Ghana, Kenya and Mali are in Group B. List of of­fi­cials for the Women Af­con fi­nals
