The Knight of the whistle from the Southern African country has been selected by CAF to officiate the second leg
Lesotho’s highly-rated referee Martin Lebalnd Mokete has been appointed by Caf to officiate the Confederations Cup preliminary round involving CARA Brazzaville and Asante Kotoko in Congo on February 21, AshesGyamera can confirm.
Mokete who is very young and active is expected to be helped on the flanks by countrymen Souru Phatsoane and Amadou Ngom respectively, while Osiase William Koto plays the role as fourth referee.
The fear of elimination has already gripped several Kotoko supporters following their side’s 1-0 victory over CARA in the first leg despite having four penalties awarded them by Senegalese referee Issah Sy.
According to reports in the local media, CARA have sworn to retaliate the alleged unfair treatment they went through in Ghana but Kotoko have already made arrangements to resist such actions.
Kotoko are expected to depart Ghana for Brazzaville on February 19 with a chartered flight ahead of the second leg after realising tickets for each player ranges between $1000 and $1,200 since they will have to make a transit in Ethiopia.
The winner after the two legs will meet the winner between Tunisian side Ben Guerdane and Al Hilal Juba of Sudan.
