(Rtd) Brig Gen Sekamana Jean Damascène, has resigned from his position as the President of the Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) citing difficulties to simultaneously assume duties of the federation and his personal responsibilities.

Gen Sekamana resigned yesterday in a letter he wrote to FERWAFA’s committee citing personal reasons.

“Considering the fact that supervising football body nowadays requires me lot of time and effort because it is important to monitor it day by day. This requires me to do it as a daily routine. I find that combining it with my other personal responsibilities would have had a negative impact on the development of football,” he said.

Brig Gen Sekamana thanked FERWAFA committee for trust bestowed upon him and teamwork spirit during his stay in office.

Sekamana became Ferwafa president in 2018 after obtaining 45 votes out of the 53 votes in an election beating his rival Louis Rurangirwa who got 7 votes.

He replaced Vincent ‘De Gaulle’ Nzamwita who resigned in January 2018 due to personal reasons after running the federation for 4 years.

(Rtd) Brig Gen Sekamana resigns eight months before ending his tenure.

Marcel Habyarimana, who is a Vice President in the federation, will serve as interim President until March next year as stipulated by FERWAFA laws in article 31.
