And about time, too!!!

The Rwanda Football Federation is taking steps to put an end to what some believe is witchcraft working its way into soccer matches. New rules have been put in place to punish clubs, managers and/or players adjudged to engage in the practice.

Coaches and players and can face steep fines and bans if found guilty of using witchcraft, per the Rwanda New Times. If a team is found guilty, they face a three-point deduction and a fine of 500,000 Rwandan Francs, or about $600.

UPDATE: Maybe he didn't deserve that yellow card after all
Upon further review, it appears Camara was actually trying to reverse apparent witchcraft performed by the goalkeeper. This extended video shows Camara actually removed, not placed, an object near the goalpost.

That's ridiculous, all cultures are equally evolved - in their own way

- he was just displaying the vibrant mosaic of cultural diversity - you just have cultural tunnel vision so you are just not tuned into the value of mindlessly embracing other cultures as equal but different.

ya jus don't get it do ya - this was a religious ceremony not unlike Kwanza - straighten up!

i, for one, am totally fed up with witchcraft driven sports triumphs. until such time as the black arts are equally available to, say... the toronto maple leafs... we have to view all professional sports with a jaundiced eye.
