Three Rwandan Referees selected For CECAFA Women Challenge Cup

Posted on Jul 11 2018

Three Rwandan women referees have been picked to handle the CECAFA Women Challenge Cup 2018 which will be staged in Kigali City from July 19-27.

The trio include: FIFA Under-20 Women World Cup candidate referee Mukasanga Salma Rhadia who was picked among the five center referees for the tournament.

The other centre referees from other countries named for the competition include Jonesia R. Kabakama (Tanzania), Lidya Tafesse Abebe (Ethiopia), Nabada Shamilah (Uganda) and Carolyne Wanjala (Kenya)

The remaining Rwandan duo of Sandrine Murangwa and Francine Ingabire will officiate among other assistant referees lined up for the tournament namely; Wogayehu Zewdu Bizuayehu (Ethiopia), Mary Njoroge (Kenya), Lydia Nantabo (Uganda) and Tanzanian Hellen Mduma.

Meanwhile, Rwanda National Women Football Team is engaged in intensive preparations ahead of this year’s CECAFA Women’s Championship.

Twenty four players were summoned by head coach Kayiranga Jean Baptista on Tuesday to start residential training at La Palisse Hotel in Nyamata.

The team will train until July 18, a day before they take on reigning champions Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro Queens in the opening match of the regional tournament, which is scheduled to kick-off at 16:15 at Stade de Kigali.

The Rwandan ladies will be back to action on Monday July 23 when they host Ethiopia at 16:15, then face Uganda on Wednesday July 25 before concluding their campaign on Friday July 27 against Kenya.

The majority of the players summoned have been withdrawn from reigning National Women League champions AS Kigali WFC, league runners-up Scandinavia WFC and Kamonyi WFC and Rambura WFC respectively.

The former AS Kigali player Mukamana Clementine who plies her trade with Tanzania’s Kigoma Sisters is the only foreign-based player summoned to beef up the women squad.

Rwanda, who didn’t progress past the group stage, will be aiming to win the tournament but will face strong opposition from defending champions Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Kenya who have had competitive women’s teams in recent continental and global qualifiers.

Tanzania won the title after edging Kenya in the final while Ethiopia overcame hosts Uganda to take third place in the 2016 edition held in Uganda.
