The Zambian ref stirred controversy during the Caf Champions League semis clash between Esperance and Primiero Agosto

Caf have provisionally suspended Zambian referee Janny Sikazwe on suspicion of corruption following the way he handled the Caf Champions League match which Esperance won 4-2 in Rades.

It is not yet clear if Sikazwe has filed an appeal with the Caf Appeals Board. “The chairman of the Caf Disciplinary Board decides that there is good ground to hold a hearing regarding allegations of corruption made against Mr Janny Sikazwe,” read the ruling by the Caf Disciplinary Board.

“Mr Janny Sikazwe is provisionally suspended from all football activities related to Caf pending a hearing before Caf Disciplinary Board.”Article continues below

Sikazwe, who refereed at the 2018 Fifa World Cup, awarded a controversial penalty which led to Esperance’s first goal after adjudging Algerian forward Mohamed Belaili to have been fouled by Agosto defender Jose Macaia.

In the second half, Agosto thought they had buried the contest but Bobo Ungenda’s goal was disallowed after Esperance goalkeeper Rami Jridi was ruled to have been pushed by Mingo Bille in the process.

The Tunisians’ winning goal came as scorer Anice Badri appeared to have had infringed on an Agosto defender attempting to clear danger.
