Kenya's Marwa to represent Kenya in A frican Cup finals

Harambee Stars will not take part in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations that kicks off next weekend in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, but Kenya will be represented nonetheless.

Assistant referee Aden Range Marwa will join two other referees from Council of East and Central African Football Associations (Cecafa) member countries – Rwanda’s Felicien Kabanda and Jean-Claude Birumushahu from Burundi.

"It is every referee’s prayer to represent his or her country at such a level and this is a good opportunity for me, to be among the officials at this year’s tournament," said Marwa.

Important test

The referee will be only the second from the region to take part in an event of such a high magnitude after Rwanda’s Celestin Ntagungira, now retired, who officiated in the 2010 Fifa World Cup Finals in South Africa.

Marwa was also an assistant referee in last year’s Under-17 Fifa World Cup in Mexico.

This will be a crucial moment for the official. Some of the great names have lost their Fifa badge and there are free slots on the federation’s prospective list for the next World Cup.

Biggest tournament

Africa Cup of Nations is the biggest tournament on the continent and, for one to get a nod from CAF, it always presents a happy moment to any official, " said Marwa 

"I just pray to God to see me through the tournament."

The Kenyan joins established referees such as Caf Referee of the Year Noumandiez Doue from Cote d’Ivoire, Mali’s Koman Coulibaly and Senegalese Badara Diatta, one of the best and most experienced officials from Africa.

Fourth tournament

It will be his fourth Africa Cup of Nations tournament, besides having overseen 10 World Cup qualifiers and some 2008 Beijing Olympic Games matches.

"Each tournament presents a different challenge and to take part in any of the top competitions is equally demanding," Marwa pointed out.
