A few minutes before the kick-off of the much-anticipated District Independence Football Cup
final between the local team from Kookookrom a village in Ghana and the visitors from
Makokrom, a comparatively bigger town. There was still no sign of the referee and his assistants
arriving from the regional capital.
Finally, the clock stuck 4pm; kick off time! Still no sign of the match officials.
Just as everyone present thought the match would be cancelled, suddenly a young boy was seen
walking briskly towards the field. Residents of the village recognised him-it was ten-year old
Kofi Mensah. What was he up to, many began to wonder?
After exchanging a few words with the match commissioner and managers of the two teams,
word soon began to spread around to the effect the match would go ahead – with Kofi Mensah as
the referee!
Could the little boy live up to the task of officiating such a huge game?
You are welcome, dear reader, to find out for yourself.
