Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) has suspended referee Dieudonne Ngabonziza for three months after “he broke the law” in awarding Miroplast FC a penalty against Mukura VS during match day 7 of the Azam Rwanda Premier League played on November 22 at Huye Stadium.

FERWAFA say they took the decision to suspend the referee based on the recommendations of the Referees’ Commission after assessing his conduct during that game.

The fateful match ended in a 2-2 draw and Ngabonziza, who was the referee in charge where he awarded an equalizing penalty to newly promoted Miroplast FC, which “was never meant to be.”

Ngabonziza’s suspension takes effect from December 1, 2017 until the end of February, 2018. However, the suspension handed to referee Ngabonziza doesn’t change the result of the game.

AS Kigali top the league standings with 16 points, one ahead of SC Kiyovu and APR FC, who are second and third respectively.
