Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame has called for urgent action to address issues plaguing Rwandan football, including the presence of witchcraft.
During the televised “Ask the President” session with the Rwanda Broadcasting Agency (RBA), Mr Kagame said some individuals, particularly coaches, were involved in unethical practices such as witchcraft.
Despite substantial investment in the sports sector, the country’s teams have struggled to achieve success.
Rwanda’s national football team have only qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations once, in 2004, and are currently bottom of their qualifying group having yet to win a match.
President Kagame is a well-known football fan, and follows English club Arsenal.
