HISTORICAL FACT: First Woman Referee in AFCON 2022

<SUNBIGHT>~Cameroon~ Nkwo~20th January,2022.


RWANDAN Salima MUKANSANGA becomes the first woman in history to referee an AFCON match.

The 35-year-old on Tuesday, 18th Jan, officiated the match between Guinea and Zimbabwe.

Mukansanga’s first real involvement came when she brandished her first yellow card, booking Ibrahima Cisse for a raised elbow.

Mukansanga showed six yellow cards in total but, having previously refereed at the Tokyo Olympics last year, looked assured throughout her landmark outing in the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo.
