Disgraced Fifa-rated World Cup referee Aden Marwa has shunned media interviews and gone back to his teaching job in Migori county.
Marwa, Kenya’s celebrated referee, was set to be among those to officiate the 2018 World Cup in Russia but was dropped after he was caught in a BBC exposé “receiving a gift”. The expose was done through an undercover Ghanaian journalist story.
The Confederation of Africa Football on Sunday banned Marwa and others from the game and other football related activities after the CAF’s Disciplinary Committee found Marwa guilty of match fixing after he was captured on video receiving a US$ 600 (Sh60,000 ) bribe.
Marwa has resumed his teaching job at Komotobo Secondary School in Kuria East, Migori county after all life has to move on despite the embarrassing incident which has left his career and reputation destroyed .
Marwa declined to talk to the media and instructed his family members and relatives at his Kehancha and Nyamtiro homes in Kuria East not to welcome any visitors. The referee was found out after a investigation by Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw.
The teacher-cum-referee took the $600(KshSh60,000 ) bribe during the 2018 Chan tournament in Morocco leading to him being immediately dropped from the role he had been previously appointed for.
