RE: “Haba steps down as RCA president” (The New Times, April 22).
Thank you Charles Haba for making things happen. I am not a cricket player but can testify your effort and passion to cricket. I am one of those who came to know about the cricket because of your campaign.
In 2001, at the then University of Rwanda (in Huye), you would move from door to door inviting students to come and see the small cricket team playing over the weekend to discover what cricket is about. You invited the then USA ambassador to Rwanda and his cricket team to come and play in Butare. He was so happy and impressed. I remember, when he was leaving, he invited the small team of cricket players at the university to a party where only senior government officials and diplomats had been invited.
He pointed out the importance of your work in building cricket in Rwanda. Thanks for your efforts in setting up the Rwandan cricket association and making me know the game. I am sure the new leadership team will build on your foundation and move forward.
