1 Mins read

Midlands-based referee Munyaradzi Mujoni has been suspended by the Zimbabwe Football Association Referee’s Committee for two months following his poor performance on Sunday.

Mujoni was at the centre of controversy in Dynamos’ 1-0 win against Yadah on Matchday One of the 2021 Castle Lager premier soccer league.

The referee made some questionable decisions in the match, one incident being the crude tackle by DeMbare skipper Patson Jaure which could have seen the player getting marching orders.

The Referee’s Committee has written to Mujoni informing him about the ban.

 “The Zimbabwe Football Association Referees Committee wishes to inform you that you have been suspended from football refereeing with immediate effect for a period of two months,’’ reads the letter, which is signed by the committee`s secretary-general, Obert Zhoya.  

“This follows your poor performance during the league match played at the NSS (National Sports Stadium) on Sunday, 7 November, 2021 between Dynamos and Yadah,” it reads.
