The FERWAFA Electoral Commission confirmed the development in a media briefing held at FERWAFA Headquarters in Remera, Kigali City.

The FERWAFA Electoral Commission Vice President Boniface Nsabimana said, “We are officially declaring Rtd. Brig. Gen. Jean Damascene Sekamana and Rurangirwa Louis as eligible candidates allowed to contest for the presidency of FERWAFA,”

“The two candidates have met all the Electoral Code requirements and they are allowed to start campaigning from March 12 until March 30, 2018. We have asked them to exercise professionalism and discipline during the campaign process,” added Nsabimana.

Retired Brig. Gen. Sekamana who served as the president of SC Kiyovu and vice president of Bugesera Fc in recent years, is the vice president of second division cub Intare Fc.

Rurangirwa, a former referee was recommended by the Rwanda Referees Association (ARAF). The electoral commission also announced the list of executive committee members for the two candidates.

The term of office for the President and his Executive Committee who will be elected on March 31, 2018 will be a four-year term renewable three times only.
