Afcon 2019: Caf Appoints Congolese Referee for Nigeria v Libya Clash

Democratic Republic of Congo officials will take charge of the upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Nigeria and Libya on October 12, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has announced.

Jean-Jacques Ndala Ngambo will be the center referee for the match day three fixture scheduled to hold at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna and he will be assisted by Olivier Safari Kabene (first assistant) and Nabina Blaise Sebutu (second assistant).

Ngambo, who works in the Katanga Football League, is a seasoned referee having officiated in the CAF Champions League, 2015 and 2017 Africa U17 Cup of Nations, World Cup qualifiers and AFCON qualifiers.

CAF also announced that Motswana referee Joshua Bondo will oversee the match day four fixture between the Mediterranean Knights and the Super Eagles on October 15, adding that the venue has not yet been decided.

Bondo, 40, officiated the Super Eagles 1-0 win over Zambia in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, and Nigeria’s 1-1 draw with Kenya in a World Cup qualifier back in March 2013.

His compatriots Oamogetse Godisamang and Meshack Medupi are the first and second assistant referees respectively for the tie.
