D-day as FERWAFA decides on the new president between incumbent Nzamwita Vincent (L) and Rwemalika Felicite (R).

The Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) goes to elections today to elect the new president in an elective general assembly scheduled to begin at 9am at Lemigo Hotel in Kigali City.

The country’s football position is being battled by incumbent Nzamwita Vincent and Rwemalika Felicite who has been serving at the executive committee member in charge of women football and currently is the vice president of Rwanda National Olympic and Sport Committee.

The pair have had almost three weeks of campaigning and convincing the general assembly members to trust them with the mantle to lead Rwandan football for the next four years.

Speaking to KT Sports on Friday, the Ferwafa electoral committee president Kalisa Adolphe said, “We are well prepared to have successful elections on Saturday and we believe members with the right to vote will decide on their new president in a calm and peaceful atmosphere.”

The FERWAFA Polls will be monitored by election observers led by FIFA council, CAF 2nd Vice President and FECOFA President Constant Omari Selemani and representatives from the Ministry of Sports and Culture and Rwanda National Olympic Committee.

The FERWAFA General Assembly is composed of 52 members led by 16 top flight league club, 24-second division clubs, 9 women clubs and three associations respectively.

The Ferwafa president and his Executive Committee will serve a four-year term from 2018 to 2021.
