The University of Rwanda/ Huye campus to return to the National Basketball league

The Officer in charge of sports at the University of Rwanda/ Huye Campus, Mr. Albert Kayiranga admits that the campus is returning to the National Basketball league. The University of Rwanda (UR) /Huye campus which is the former National University of Rwanda had teams in both the men and women leagues but withdrew them before the start of last season. Speaking to the Public Relations Office of UR / Huye campus, Mr. Albert Kayiranga explained that the campus didn’t participate in the last season due to the timing period of fixtures which were very inconvenient with the academic calendar. “Yesterday, the 19th January 2014, we took part in the general assembly of the Rwanda Basketball federation and agreed on our return. We reminded of the necessity to pay attention on fixtures’ timing since our players are students”, said Kayiranga. Mr. Albert Kayiranga asserts that the day-to-day training sessions are running well and players have a high morale to participate again in the national league. He indicates that both men and women teams are set to feature in this year’s league expected to start in February. By Jean Baptiste MICOMYIZA
