The three-man team includes; Angelline Nyiransabimana, Dieudonne Disi and Appollinaire Munyangoga; the national athletics federation secretary general.
Disi and Nyiransabimana will compete in the 5000m race of the championship that runs from August 23-24.
The federation’s technical director Emmanuel Murenzi has said that the athletes have not been escorted by a technical coach but could not reveal why.
