Kenyan referee Davies Omweno has been handed a three-month suspension by Caf.

The Nakuru-based Fifa-accredited referee was banned by the African football governing body for alleged poor performance during the 2018 world cup qualifiers match between Libya and Tunisia on November 11.

Omweno was also accused of wrong positioning and movement, incorrect identification of fouls and failure to administer some disciplinary sanctions.

Other referees who have been suspended include Berhe O’Michael (Eritrea), Joseph Odartei (Ghana) and Theogene Ndagijimana (Rwanda).
