Ssendyowa off to Djibouti

Retired referee, Abbas Ssendyowa

Western region and FUFA zone six chairperson, Abbas Ssendyowa will this weekend preside over the Somalia- Ethiopia World Cup qualifiers preliminary round match in Djibouti as the match commissioner.

Ssendyowa, a retired referee who is also the chairperson of the federation standing committee on refereeing,  received the appointment from the CAF, a continental football body. The game to be played from a neutral ground due to the persisted insecurity in Somalia is scheduled for the weekend of November 11-13.

Speaking to the federation communications department on Wednesday afternoon before his departure, Ssendyowa said he would be meeting all the FUFA referees’ instructors on Monday November 14 shortly after returning from his CAF assignment. The meeting is scheduled for 3:00pm, local time. The following day, the FRSC chairman has also invited all the FIFA referees and their assistants for another crucial and administrative meeting starting 9:00am. Both meetings will take place at FUFA house.

In a related development, Ugandan referees Denis Batte, Sonko Mark, Musa Balikoowa and Ali Kalyango left Tuesday evening to Seychelles to officiate the world cup qualifiers preliminary round match between the hosts and visiting Kenya. The match is slated for Saturday November 12.
