Other players signed include Silvestre Ndayisaba from Kirehe, Placide Madison Sibomana from Al-Gharafa Sports Club in Qatar, Flavien Ndamukunda from Gisagara, Simon Rwigema from Rusumo High School and Martial Inkoramutima from Petit Seminaire Virgo Fidelis.

Mana added that he will need another player before the league kickoffs to make sure he has a strong squad for the next season.

REG finished 5th in the 8-team league table last season with 18 points. The side has also released several players including Yves Niyonkuru, Cedrick Ngaboyimana and Barack Rugira.
