African football chiefs have banned witchcraft amidst concerns that players have been using rituals to their advantage during games.
The rather bizarre news comes following an incident that occurred earlier this month Rayon Sports striker Moussa Camara appeared to perform a ritual in a game against Mukura Victory.
Footage showed Camara leaning an object on the opposition’s goalpost before scoring shortly afterwards.
Rayon Sports had earlier missed an inviting chance to equalise but drew level when Camara found the net, with the game ending 1-1. Camara’s side are currently top of the Rwandan national soccer league, having won eight and drawn two of their fixtures this season.
Several incidents of this nature have occurred of late, with new rules stipulating that any player that is caught participating in witchcraft will be hit with a fine of 100,000 Rwandan Francs, which equates to around £99.
Furthermore, clubs engaging in such activity can be fined 2.9 million Rwandan Francs (around £2,890), while they will also be docked three points.
