Southern Malawi Police has said on Friday that a Referee has been charged with murder after he was allegedly forced to kill a member of the opposing team.

Punch reports that The referee was officiating a football match between two local teams, Billiat FC and Chilengo FC, in the town of Thyolo on Wednesday, when Chilengo FC players refused to accept the referee’s decision to invalidate a goal, district police spokesman Benjamin Foster told dpa.

In the ensuing scuffle, the referee fled to a nearby house, which the players lit to smoke him out, according to Foster.

The Police report says that the players forced the referee who was hiding in a burning building to smack a Billiat FC player repeatedly with a stick.

Foster stated that the Referee handed himself over to be charged for murder after the injured player died in the hospital.
