Mukura Victory Sports head coach Francis Haringingo has challenged the club’s new signings Abbedy Biramahire and Patrick Sibomana to raise the level of the team in the second round of the Azam Rwanda Premier League.

“We signed them on six-month renewable contracts and have tasked them to take use their experience to help the team in their quest to win the league title for the first time,” Haringingo said

Striker Biramahire, 20, signed from Tunisian side CS Sfaxien of Tunisia and will reportedly be earning Rwf0.4m after getting a Rwf2m signing on fee.
