RWANDA will not compete in this year’s Mwalimu Nyerere International volleyball tournament scheduled for December 4-9 in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.

The volleyball federation, FRVB Executive Secretary Gertrude Kubwimana yesterday blamed the team’s absence on financial constraints.

Rwanda’s withdrawal means that the number of participating nations is down to three; Burundi, Uganda and hosts Tanzania.  Burundi and Uganda will field two sides while Tanzania is expected to field 16 teams.
