Zimbabwean referee Matemera who once rejected bribe to officiate Ghana- Sierra Leone game

Zimbabwean FIFA referee Norman Matemera has been appointed by CAF to handle Ghana's 2019 AFCON clash with Sierra Leone.
Ghana will face the senior national team of Sierra Leone in the third round of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on October 11.
The 36-year-old who rejected bribe earlier this year will be assisted on the lines by Thomas Kusosa and Luckson Mhara.
In April 2018, Matemera rejected a $10,000 bribe from Equatorial Guinea’s Desportivo Niefang to fix the CAF Confederation Cup return Match against Cote d’Ivoire’s Williamsville Athletic Club.
The bribery attempt occurred on the eve of the game as officials of the home side, working in collaboration with Togolese match Commissioner Lwason Mahuwe as their emissary, tried to offer Matemera and his assistants Brighton Nyika, Salina Ncube and Pilan Ncube a cash bribe of $10,000.
The intention was to influence the officials to aid Neifang to overturn a 2-0 first leg deficit and help them advance to the lucrative group stage of the secondary Africa interclub championships.
Motemera and co, however, turned down the tempting offer and instead reported the incident to the CAF.
