Ahead of the three-day event, the president of the national Kung-fu federation Yassin Mubarak Uramukiwe is confident that Rwanda will shine in the event.

“We have a pre-selection team of fifteen players who have been doing non-residential training over the last two weeks so we expect a good show from our team,” Uramukiwe said.
Uramukiwe also thanked the Sports Ministry for bankrolling the championship.
