The Disciplinary Committee of FERWAFA (Rwandese Association Football Federation) has banned Kiyovu Sports from transferring and registering players, as long as it has not paid its former coach Casa Mbungo André.

Casa Mbungo André was made head coach of the football club in August of 2017 and left in November of 2018 after spending three months without being paid the contract wages.

In October 2018, he wrote a letter to the management of Kiyovu Sports communicating that he would leave the team in thirty days if his payments were not affected.

On May 16, 2019, Casa reported the case to FERWAFA which ordered Kiyovu Sports to pay him Rwf 6,500,000.

On the 7th of July 2019, FERWAFA gave Kiyovu Sports sixty days to pay the former coach, failure of which a ban would be imposed on their transferring and registering of players.

Kiyovu Sports appealed against the order, but, on the 8th of November 2019, the appeal committee of FERWAFA rejected it.

On January 4, 2020, the representative of Casa demanded that FERWAFA enforce the ban, which was agreed by FERWAFA disciplinary committee on Saturday, January 18, 2020.

The ban comes at a time when Kiyovu Sports has entered into a four-year Rwf 132,000,000 contract with AZAM Bakhresa Group.

Kiyovu Sports is currently in the fifth position with 26 points in the national football league. It recently registered such new players as Habamahoro Vincent from AFC Leopards, Kenya, and the Cameroonian Mbazo ’o Nkoto Karim, registered before the ban was enforced.
