Rwanda has been confirmed by the Federation of East African Secondary School Sports Associations (FEASSSA) as hosts of the 2018 edition of the annual regional inter-schools competition.
Rwanda was confirmed after thorough inspection of Musanze District, which will be the host city for the multi-sport competition in August, but the dates have not yet been set.
The technical team that conducted the inspections consisted of representatives from member states namely; Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda, led by FEASSSA president, Justus Mugisha.
“We came for inspection because we did not know much about Musanze. To our surprise, it is a very beautiful town with decent infrastructure to host the Games; everyone on the technical team is convinced,” Mugisha told Times Sport after declaring Musanze the host city.
It is the second time in three years that Rwanda will be hosting the FEASSSA Games – the first time was 2015, and the Games were held in Huye district, Southern Province.
FEASSSA Games normally attract over 4000 athletes and officials from the six regional countries, namely; Kenya, Burundi, Tanzania, Uganda, South Sudan and Rwanda.
