EXPERIENCED FIFA referees Fred Mufta and Ali Kalyango are missing from the list of referees that have been approved for 2014. 

Uganda slots for center referees was cut from five to three while that of the assistant referees was also cut from seven to five according to a list that has been released by the national soccer governing body FUFA, though more information suggests that some other referees might make it back on the list after fulfilling some technical requirements.

Only Dennis Batte is the survivor on the list that has new names in Alex Muhabi Nsilumbi and Mashood Ssali for the center referees. Ronnie Kalema and Brian Miiro Nsubuga are also missing from that list.

Mark Ssonko, Lee Okello, Musa Balikowa, Samuel Kayondo and Hussein Bugembe are the five remaining assistant referees. Khalifan Kanakulya and Yahya Kitti are the two to miss out.

“The federation has received the approved list of referees and assistant referees from Uganda for the FIFA list for 2014 and shall be legible to officiate official international matches,” read the release signed by the federation chief executive officer Edgar Watson.

Irene Namubiru and Aisha Ssemambo retain their women referee badges with Diane Mukasa, Catherina Nagadya and Marrex Nkubi being assistant referees.

“They will meet the executive on January 6,” added Watson.
