“I am also bringing on board expanded regional and international networks that will be exploited for the benefit of our Olympic body and besides that instill best practices that have worked for various committees in other countries, added Rwemalika.

Rwemalika founded the Organisation of Kigali Women in Sports, and since 2001 she has travelled across the country to use football as a powerful instrument to empower girls and reconcile a healing generation.

Rwemalika was voted into office alongside new President Amb. Munyabagisha Valens who was stood unopposed to replace Bayigamba Robert while Bizimana Festus was voted as the 2nd Vice President, replacing Manirarora Elie.
