“As CECAFA we wish to congratulate our Patron President Kagame and thank the people of Rwanda for the peaceful manner they demonstrated before, during and after the elections,”

“We are confident that the president will continue with his vision of rebuilding Rwanda and place the beautiful country on a further lane of development and peace,”

Since 2002, Kagame has been pivotal in the development of football in the region with his annual sponsorship worth $60.000 as cash prize for winners in the Cecafa/Kagame club championship.
