The successful candidates were Mr Koffi Botsoe (TOG), Mr Tyeoulou Kouya (CIV); Mr Paul Zirimba (CIV), Mr Jocelin Trah (CIV), Mr Leon Ndrin (CIV) and Mr John Solarays (GHA).

KCF Africa would specifically like to thank Dr Essoh Essis and his team at FIDEC for making the seminar possible and we congratulate FIDEC on their 4 new FA's who will be the first FIDE qualified officials in the history of Cote d'Ivoire.

We also wish to thank IA Stephen Boyd whose traveled from France to deliver the training and whose guidance throughout the event and the seminar was invaluable to everyone involved.
