A Kenyan referee who had been chosen for the 2018 World Cup in Russia has been banned for life after accepting a bribe, an African Football Confederation (CAF) statement said Sunday.

Marwa Range was dropped from the World Cup list after a media sting exposed him accepting a $6,000 (about 5,100 euros) bribe from a journalist posing as a Ghanaian football official.

A terse CAF statement gave no details about what Range was expected to do in return for the cash.

Range is the second major casualty of a series of stings by Ghanaian journalists, which led to follow countryman Kwesi Nyantakyi resigning as CAF first vice-president over corruption.

A total of 22 referees are affected by the CAF crackdown with Togolese Yanissou Bebou and Gambian Jallow Ebrima banned for 10 years each.

Ivory Coast referee Denis Dembele, a regular on the African national team and club fixtures circuit, got a six-year ban.

A further seven match officials received suspensions ranging between two and five years, according to the statement.

Another 11 referees -- 10 Ghanaians and one Liberian -- have been provisionally banned pending appearances before a CAF disciplinary board on August 5.

A clear reason why some of the referees officiate or make nonsense and CRAPY calls - sometimes. They have certainly been compromised

Thank goodness Nigerian refs were not part of the sting. The shame would have been a stinker, even though we need something like this expose in our league. The fact that our refs are known to be compromised meant their absence from continental scene saved them from Anas's limelight.

Abeg, this one no be laughing matter. The journalist who carried out the sting opegation is Ghanaian and he wanted to expose the rot in their league. It might be shameful but it's the first step to establishing a better league. Had the same sting operation been done in Nigeria..... I shudder to think the number and the calibre of people that could have been implicated?

CAF should start banning referees based on poor performance. There are too many blatantly biased referees in African football.
