RWANDA National Olympic and Sports Committee (RNOSC) has called for concerted effort to fight corruption and match-fixing in sports.

This is contained in a statement released hot on the heels of allegations of bribery and match-fixing incidents in the topflight football league.

But RNOSC warned against leveling such claims without facts.

Briefing the media recently, Rwanda Football Association president Brig. Gen (rtd) Jean-Damascène Sekamana also called for caution.

“There could be several reasons influencing referees. It could be drawn to delays in receiving wages, lack of motivation or even stress. To pin them on match-fixing, you need concrete proof he stated.

The two bodies and the Ministry of Sports and Culture say they will step up coordination and partnerships to improve professionalism and rid the sport of malpractices.
