The handing over ceremony was presided over by  former FIFA referee Ali Tomusange who encouraged the referees to execute their work with positive attitude in order to maintain these badges.
‘I call upon all those who have received the badges to defend them because FUFA reserves the right of giving them and calling them back’ noted Tomusange warned them.
