Kenya Football Referees Association Teso Sub branch exists illegally according to two veteran technical officials.
Retired referee Bramwel Onyiko and coach Apollo Oteba said a sub branch is deemed to be legally in existence if it has 30 qualified members.
Speaking while presiding over a referees training at Okima hall in Malaba, the two officials regretted that KFRA Teso Sub branch had only 18 qualified referees instead of 40.
Onyiko vilified the national chairman of the technical and referees committee, Elly Mukolwe for allegedly outlawing all referees instructors courses across the country conducted by people not trained to execute the task.
Mukolwe said all future training of referees will be handled by eight instructors who have undergone training and not "quacks."
Onyiko said the order by Mukolwe was unworkable, adding that local instructors are there to pass the laws and wondered how the eight trained instructors will identify potential referees from the grassroot.
