Genocide Memorial Tournament to Kick-Off on 23 June in Rwanda

The competition is the sixth edition of the annual memorial Rugby sevens organised to commemorate victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi who included sports personalities

Rwanda Rugby Federation (RRF) has announced that this year’s Rugby, Genocide Memorial Tournament (GMT) will take place on June 23 at the Amahoro national stadium.

The competition is the sixth edition of the annual memorial Rugby sevens organised to commemorate victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi who included sports personalities.

RRF Secretary General Tharcisse Kamanda said there will be some changes in the number of participating teams which are expected to increase to 12 from eight that participated in last year’s edition and include one from Uganda, one from DRC.

“The competition will be exciting for the fans. We have invited one team from Uganda, Mbarara University, as well as Okapi from Goma DRC”, he said.

The other 10 expected to grace the tournament are domestic clubs which are champions Thousand Hills, Remera Buffaloes, Muhanga, Kigali Sharks, Resilience, UR Grizzlies as well as Puma Kamonyi and Lion de Fer IPRC Kigali and tumba college.

Last year, Thousand Hills beat Mbarara University of Uganda 13-12 to lift the trophy, and Hills head coach Jimmy Adams Mugabo says they are ready to defend their title.

  1. Hello ,

    I’m also interested in this topic + have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about Rockwall Investments and the way how normal people can make money with this company.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?
