Ghana Referee Blasts GFA Over Kyei Andoh’s Autopsy Report

Referee Francis Tachie-Menson is fingering the Ghana FA for having a hand in the autopsy results of the late Andoh in order to escape sanctions.

A member of the Referees’ Association of Ghana (RAG) Francis Tachie-Menson has rubbished the autopsy report of ex-member Kyei Andoh, who was allegedly beaten to death by irate fans.

Tachie-Menson, who was also involved in a similar situation but narrowly escaped death in Atebubu, believes the Ghana Football Association has a hand in the report of the late Andoh, adding that the football governing body is trying to escape the wrath of Fifa.

“If the autopsy report reveals referee Kyei Andoh died of natural cause, then why is GFA funding the funeral expenses? I said it, I felt it. I sensed that something fishy was going to go on,” he wrote on his official Facebook page.

He added: “After all, GFA is seen as bigger than a referee’s life. Their attitude is, and has always been let us protect what’s left [the living] and by so doing they deny justice to the dead.”

“Do not rest Referee Kyei Andoh. Fight for the rest of us alive by every means possible till the truth comes out,” Tachie-Menson concluded.

He was the center referee in the Division One League game between Atebubu Esperance and Techiman City in Atebubu where he was beaten and stabbed with a pair of pliers.
