“We also want to send a big delegation to the 2012 London Olympic Games,” the 35-year-old, said.

The other members of the new committee include Alexis Kwitegetse (1st vice president), Constatin Kayitare (2nd vice president), Bernadette Nikuze (Secretary General) and Hodali Nsengiyumva (treasurer).
