THE Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) ha urged stakeholders to assist the national women soccer team, Twiga Stars, ahead of the Africa Women Championship qualifier match against Namibia mid next month.
TFF Information Officer, Boniface Wambura said on Friday that the team needs at least 50m/- to foot travel cost for the players, technical bench as well as camping and allowances before their first outing against Namibia on January 14.
Twiga Stars qualified for the finals last year and are scheduled for the first leg away match in Windhoek and the return leg match will be in Dar es Salaam on January 29. The team is currently in an off training camp at the Karume sports complex under coach Charles Boniface Mkwasa.
The federation is seeking for the stakeholders' support taking into account that Twiga Stars does not have a sponsor like Taifa Stars does.
Players who have been selected to form the teams and their respective clubs in brackets include Sophia Mwasikili (Sayari Women), Fatuma Bushiri (Simba Queens), Fatuma Omari (Sayari Women), Mwajuma Abdallah (JKT), Asha Rashid (Mburahati Queens), Mwanahamisi Omari (Mburahati Queens), Ettoe Mlenzi (JKT), Zena Khamis (Mburahati Queens), Fatuma Khatib (Mburahati Queens), Maimuna Said (JKT), Fadhila Hamad (Uzuri Queens), Fatuma Mustapha (Sayari Women) and Evelyn Senkubo (Mburahati Queens).
Others are Rukia Hamisi (Sayari Women), Mwapewa Mtumwa (Evergreen), Judith Hassan (TMK), Aziza Mwadini (Zanzibar), Sabai Yusuf (Zanzibar), Semeni Abeid (Tanzanite Queens), Zena Said (Uzuri Queens), Pulkaria Charaji (Sayari Women), Tatu Said (Makongo Sekondari), Mwanaidi Hamisi (Uzuri Queens), Hanifa Idd (Uzuri Queens) and Fatuma Gotagota (Mburahati Queens).
Meanwhile, Wambura said 14 local referees have attained FIFA badges for next year after passing their examinations. Wambura said two are new in the field namely Ferdinand Chacha and Ali Kinduli who will be assistant referees. Those who were re-cleared as central referees include Ramadhan Ibada, Orden Mbaga, Israel Mujuni and Sheha Waziri.
Others are Josephat Bulali, Hamis Changwalu, Erasmo Clemence, Khamis Maswa and Samuel Mpenzu while the women who made it are Judith Gamba, Mwanahija Makame and Saada Tibabimale.
John Kanyenye who was an assistant referee is the only referee whose name was not endorsed by FIFA.
In another development, 13 match commissioners participated in a two-day course, which came to a close in Dar es Salaam on Thursday. Wambura said the course was conducted by Stanley Lugenge, Leslie Liunda and Sunday Kayuni.
The commissioners include Abdallah Zungo, Ally Mkomwa, Ally Mozi, Army Sentimea, Awadi Nchimbi, Beatus Manga, Christopher Mpangala, Hakim Byemba, Josephat Magazi, Juma Mgunda, Juma Mpuya, Mugisha Galibona, Ramadhan Mahano, Robert Kalyahe and Said Nassoro.
“The instructors are continuing marking the tests that participants did and the best performers will be included into the list of match commissioners for the Mainland Premier League and other competitions that are directly supervised by TFF,” said Wambura.
