The second Vice President of Rwanda volleyball federation (FRVB), Fernand Sauveur Ruterana, has been voted as the president for confederation of African volleyball (CAVB) Zone V president for four-years.
Ruterana replaces compatriot and former FRVB president, Gustave Nkurunziza, who was in the position for four years.
Zone V is the biggest regional block in Africa volleyball with 12 countries; Egypt, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Eritrea, Burundi, Tanzania and Somalia.
“There has been a lot of inefficiencies in the past that need fixing,” said Ruterana.
“We will work to raise the level of volleyball — indoor and beach volleyball — in zone V and also prepare better for competitions. Empowering coaches and referees is another area that needs serious attention.”
Ruterana, a retired player for now-defunct side Amasata volleyball club, is currently President of Kigali Volleyball Club.
