Rwanda Football Federation is taking a huge move to cut the growing witchcraft incident working its way into the Nations football matches, the Federation have postulate strict laws to punish Managers, clubs, football players or any individual whoever engage in such act or practise.
The decision comes after an incident occurs in a football match between Rayon sport and Mukura Victory Sport, Rayon striker Moussa Camara, whose team was losing 1-0.
Camera footage caught the striker running over to the goalpost and place an unseen object down, immediately after Mukura Victory Sport attempted shot hit the woodwork.
The striker bolted away after the opposing team lash out at him and he received a yellow card for the silly African act, a few minutes later the striker Hoodoo takes effect as Camara scored a wonderful equaliser putting Rayon Sport back to level.
FERWAFA has finally decided whether it was a coincidence, sheer struck of luck or still witchcraft at work, the FA won’t stand for such anymore, as Coaches and players will face steep fines and will rob shoulders with lenghty bans if found guilty of the African act, as reported by the Rwanda News-Times,any team found guilty will have three points deducted and face a fine of 500,000 Rwandan Franc, a sum about $600 and 188,981 in Naira.
FERWAFA vice president Vedaste Kayiranga speak via Rwanda News Times:
Since there is no scientific way to prove the use of witchcraft, these measures will base upon reports from match officials and anything that is deemed to incite witchcraft will be put under consideration.
So, it looks like players will have to rely on pregame superstition to give them the edge now.
