Soccer Referee Martin Wekesa Says Coach Beat Him and Left Him Impotent


A referee in Kenya is suing the national football federation after he said he was left impotent by a coach who grabbed and squeezed his testicles.

Martin Wekesa is seeking $240,000 in compensation from FKF after he was assaulted in a game last September. The coach and members of the Sparki Youth team hit and kicked him before the coach "attacked in [his] private parts."

Coach Daudi Kajembe came out onto the field and attacked him after Wekesa decided to send a Sparki player off.

"He pulled my testicles. He actually pressed them and I was hanging on him when he was pulling me. I was crying and could not get myself out from his hands," Wekesa said. "I remember Kajembe told me, raising his hand, 'I can kill you in a minute,' and came directly to my testicles."

A police officer rescued Wekesa but before he did, Wekesa slumped to his knees in pain. He was taken to the hospital and is now unable to have sex with his wife as he still suffers from pain.

"It is so painful, painful, painful in my areas," he said.

Kajembe is to appear in court in Mombasa on Thursday on assault charges. Wekesa wants 20 million Kenyan shillings in compensation for his medical bills and other problems the assault caused, most notably the separation of him and his wife. 

"We used to live as wife and husband. Nowadays we don't, so that's how the life has changed," Mary Wekesa said.

The coach is pleading not guilty to all charges.
