Senior volleyball national team skipper Christophe Mukunzi will lead the Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Education of Kibungo (Inatek) in the weekend’s NSSF- KAVC international volleyball tournament in Kampala, Uganda.
According to Inatek coach Dominic Sesonga Ntawanga, the team will leave Kigali on Friday for the two-day event due on August 10-11.
However, Sesonga’s side will travel without his experienced blocker Fravier Ndamukunda, who will be replaced by Olivier Ntagengwa.
“We will travel without Ndamukunda but we are confident the players we have will do a good job,” the coach told this paper on Wednesday.
