Cameroon legend Roger Feutmba has called on the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to address the concerns regarding the levels of officiating on the continent.
Senegalese referee Maguette N'Diaye made headlines for his questionable decisions in the FIFA World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Ghana.
Feutmba says some of the decisions were "disappointing" and that CAF should take action, as such incidents impedes the progress of football in Africa.
"It was such a disappointment. I was so upset and feel sad for African football. I don't understand how a referee can give such penalty," Feutmba told the Siya crew.
Ghana were awarded a dubiois penalty, and an independent report conducted by former Premier Soccer League referee, Ace Ncobo, found 71 major incidents in the game.
"It disappointing to see these things happening in Africa and the player should have been given a yellow card for simulation. It is very hard to grow our football on the continent if we keep having such stupid decisions that kill our football."
"I hope CAF does something, it was embarrassing and I couldn't even finish the game because I was embarrassed by what happened. They did South Africa a dirty and it was shocking, especially at this level of football."
SAFA's formal complaint, sent to both FIFA and CAF, was received by the world football governing body.
The Ghana Football Association has hit back at the complaint made by SAFA, describing it as "shocking and irresponsible."
The protest will be submitted to the Disciplinary Committee on 23 November 2021.
