Marwa, a Mathematics and Chemistry teacher at Komotobo Secondary school in Migori County, was approached by a journalist posing as a Ghanaian football official during the African National Championship.

The decision to hand Marwa the ban was reached at a Caf disciplinary board meeting where 10 other officials were handed suspensions and bans.

Marwa, 41, first featured in the 2011 Fifa U-17 World Cup and was among the only four other referees picked from Africa to officiate in the world's biggest football extravaganza that is going on Russia.
