The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has tasked Kenyan Dr. Peter Waweru Kamaku to oversee the CHAN 2021 finals between Mali and Morocco on Sunday, 7 February 2021 at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium.
Kamaku will be assisted by another Kenyan, Gilbert Cheruiyot, who will serve as the first assistant referee. Cameroonians Carine Atezambong Fomo and Alioum Alioum will serve as the second assistant and fourth officials respectively.

The Video Assistant Referees (VAR) team will be led by Bamlak Tessema Weyesa of Ethiopia, and supported by Janny Sikazwe (Zambia) and Elvis Guy Noupue Nguegoue (Cameroon).
Kamaku has been one of the outstanding officials in the tournament and officiated the quarter-final clash between Mali and Congo, which the former won 5-4 on penalties after a barren draw in regular time.
Morocco are hoping to become the first team to win the tournament twice in a row after winning the last edition held in 2018 while Mali have set sights on a maiden title after losing the 2016 final to DR Congo ion Kigali, Rwanda.
