The newly elected Africa Cricket Association (ACA) East African regional Development Officer is in the country to assess the level of cricket development.
William Kamanyi who jetted in yesterday will hold a three-day assessment exercise with the Rwanda Cricket Association to find out what Rwanda needs to boast the game of cricket.
“We are privileged to have him here. He is well vast with the game and knows exactly what is needed to uplift the standard of cricket in Rwanda,” RCA’s president Charles Haba said yesterday.
Kamanyi assumed this role back in June after taking over from Kenya’s Tom Tikolo during the ACA Annual General Meeting that was held in Johannesburg, South Africa.
One of Kamanyi’s roles is to oversee cricket in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and his home country Uganda.
Kamanyi is not a new face in Rwandan cricket. The former Uganda National cricket coach was the National coach during the 2004 ICC world cricket league, Rwanda’s first ever international tournament.
On top of that, he is to a big part responsible for the success of the schools development program in Rwanda.
ACA is an affiliate body of the ICC, the global cricket governing body and runs cricket activities on the African continent.
