  • The devil has a name, Senegalese newspapers screamed after the match Senegal-Egypt in 2006. Evehe Divine did not award Senegal a penalty in the 89th minute and of course immediatly allegations about corruption and always favouring the home team appeared. More newspapers and bloggers followed and named more matches where he allegedly favoured the home team. Even the Senegales sports minister joined the discussions. That's African footbal for you.
  • In 2006 Cameroon referees called on club owners to stop offering them bribes. "Please stop calling us on the eve of your games," Divine Evehe - regarded as the best referee in the country - told the club owners, according to the BBC. Another Cameroon referee said that when he refuses money from one club, they assume he has already accepted it from the other.
