Kenyan assistant FIFA referee Aden Marwa has been handed a life ban from all CAF football related activities over corruption.

CAF communicated the same Saturday following a meeting of its Disciplinary Board.

Ten more match officials from across the continent were handed lengthy bans in the biggest ever clean-up by the Cairo based organization.

Eleven others were provisionally suspended pending their appearance before the disciplinary body.

Aden was captured in a documentary by the dreaded Ghanaian investigative journalist Anas receiving a bribe of $600 in Morocco.

The rest were also caught in the corruption web by Anas.

The stinging piece that led to many heads rolling including that of former Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi, saw Marwa resigning from officiating at the ongoing World Cup.

Marwa had been appointed as the only Kenyan to do duty at the game’s biggest platform and was to earn up-to Kshs 2.5m in allowances.

Below is the full list of the disgraced officials:

  1. Marwa Range, Assistant Referee (Kenya): life ban from all CAF related football activities;
  2. Boukari Ouedraogo, Referee (Burkina Faso): 5 years ban from all CAF related football activities;
  3. Denis Dembele, Referee (Cote d’Ivoire): 6 years ban from all CAF related football activities;
