Precious Pazani and Stuart Berry are poised to be the center referees when Kenya and Uganda clash in the Elgon Cup this weekend at Kyadondo Rugby Club.
Pazani is of Zimbabwean nationality and is ranked highly as one of Africa’s top female rugby referees alongside Uganda’s Jamila Sauda Adiru, and was in charge of the Lady Cranes fixture against the Lionesses in Kisumu for the first leg of the Elgon Cup. She will be taking charge of the second leg too.
Miss Pazani was also in charge of a number of Barthes Cup games, and will, in August, be headed to South Africa for the Rugby World Cup qualifiers.
