The Burundian, whose team sit in fourth position in the league table, level on 35 points with the reigning champions APR. Kaze told Times Sport that the Huye-based outfit have what it takes to win the Imbuto Foundation sponsored knockout competition.

Mukura take on Amagaju on Thursday in the 16 round, and Kaze is hoping to overcome national league rivals and move a step closer to achieving his target.

“We are focused on winning the Peace Cup because it is the competition where anyone can beat anyone and our target will be to reach the final and see what will happen and I believe we can go all the way,” he said.

He added, “We have good quality players and I think this team can win something this season.”

On Tuesday, Sec Academy plays against Vision, while Muhanga meet Aspor in the battles between second division teams.

The defending champions APR will play against Kirehe in the last 16 round, while three-time winners Rayon Sport host Bugesera at Amahoro Stadium on Wednesday.

Imbuto Foundation has injected Rwf97m into this year’s Peace Cup football tournament, which will be renamed “Peace Cup against Malaria”.

Last year, Imbuto Foundation also sponsored a volleyball tournament to a tune of RWf17m and sunk Rwf11.5 million into a Karate tournament to fight malaria.
