Veteran rugby referee Christopher Mwamba has been appointed by Rugby Africa as one of the 12 match officials for the Barthes Trophy 2023 to be hosted by Kenya next month.
Mwamba will be one of the two citing commissioners at the competition to be held from 20th April to May 1st in Nairobi.
The Barthés Trophy is the only junior tournament in Africa and 8 national U20 teams compete for the title.
“Rugby Africa has the pleasure to appoint you as a match official during the Barthes Trophy 2023 which takes place in Nairobi from 20th of April to 1st of May 2023,” Rugby Africa told Mwamba.
This is Mwamba’s third appointment since he was accredited as World Rugby Citing Commissioner in 2018.
He officiated at the 2022 Africa Men’s 7s Tournament in Uganda as Citing Commissioner.
Mwamba has in the past officiated two World Cup finals matches.
The 57-year-old match official has been involved in refereeing for over 26 years.
