Salima Mukansanga, first woman to referee CAN


the Cameroon and the Burkina Faso kicked off the Africa Cup of Nations this Sunday afternoon.

A competition expected around the world, during which Salima mukansanga will have the opportunity to write the history of African football in January 2022.

Retained among the CAN referees, the 33-year-old Rwandan referee will become the first woman to referee a match at the African men’s competition.

A new challenge for the referee Salima mukansanga, who has already refereed at the 2015 African Games, during the 2016 Women’s CAN final or even at the Under-17 Women’s World Cup in 2018.

At the 2019 World Cup in France, she also refereed as a center referee, as well as at the Tokyo Olympics last summer. The CAN will therefore be a new challenge for the Rwandan, who began to arbitrate in her country in 2008.
