A set of Djiboutian officials will be the men in charge as Uganda seek to qualify for their 6th CHAN tournament.

This edition of the biannual event will be hosted by Algeria in 2023 and 30 nations are vying for the remaining 15 slots.

Uganda come into Saturday’s game with a slender 1-0 advantage after beating Tanzania at the Benjamin Mkapa stadium thanks to a sensational Travis Mutyaba late goal.

CAF has thus far confirmed that experienced centre referee Souleiman Ahmed Djama will be on charge of affairs.

He will be assisted by countrymen Liban Abdoulrazak Ahmed and Rachid Wais Bouraleh as the first and second assistant referees.

These will be assessed by Hudu Munyemana of Rwanda and the commissioner will be Tuccu Guish Grbremedhin of Eritrea.

Ahmed Djama has refereed three times in the World Cup qualifiers, twice in the CAF Confederation cup and a host of other continental engagements.
