A tweet from the Ministry of Sports reads: “This morning, 11th February 2020, Minister Aurore Mimosa received a courtesy visit by Ambassador Ron Adam at the Ministry of Sports. Discussions focused on partnership in sports development projects that can be jointly implemented.”
Ambassador Ron thanked Minister Munyangaju for having him for the courtesy call and underlined the interest of Israel in supporting cycling and rebranding Rwanda through the ‘Visit Rwanda’ initiative.
Israel opened its embassy in Rwanda in April 2019 and the Ambassador resides in Kigali.
Recently, Amb Ron Adam donated sports kits to children in the Dream Team Football Academy including 48 Jerseys and 30 Football balls.
In an interview with IGIHE last month, Amb Ron said that they have put emphasis on supporting sports in Rwanda and that the embassy is organizing a friendly football match between Rwanda and Israel.
“Israel is on good terms with Rwanda and we intend to maintain our relation through partnerships especially in sports.”
Israel Cycling Academy is one of the 15 teams that will compete in Tour du Rwanda scheduled from February 23rd to March 1st, 2020.
