Kagame’s sons selected to the Rwandan football team

Rwandan President Paul Kagame’s two teenage sons have been called up to the country’s national football team.

The two teenagers, Ian Kigenza Kagame and Brian Cyizere Kagame featured for the country’s U-20 team which settled for a one – all draw against Morocco in a contest meant to commemorate the victims of the 1994 Genoide in Rwanda.

The team was cheered on by thousands of fans, including Rwanda’s First Lady Jeannette Kagame and first daughter Ange Kagame.

The Kagame family are ardent sports fanatics and participants.

Earlier this year, Jeannette marshaled most of her staff to feature in the First Lady marathon in Nairobi.

President Kagame has also continuously supported several sports events, including the 2016 Africa Nations Championship staged in Rwanda and the annual Cecafa Club Championship.
