The Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) Electoral Commission has opened the process of filing nomination for the FERWAFA presidency and the executive committee. The nomination process starts on Wednesday, November 15 and will close in two weeks, on November 28.

Addressing the media on Tuesday afternoon, the Ferwafa Electoral Commission president Adolphe Kalisa announced the road map to the 2017 FERWAFA presidential polls which will be held on December 30, 2017 at Lemigo Hotel.

This time round, it’s not only club administrators who will be allowed to vie for the presidency but even former national team players have been given the right to lead Rwandan football,” added Kalisa.
