Rayon Sports’ spokesperson Jean Paul Nkurunziza has announced that Rugwiro will appear in court on Tuesday, December 31, 2019.
Rugwiro has been under arrest for 13 days, after being caught at Petite Barrière, Rubavu, on December 17, 2019, while crossing to Rwanda.
He is accused of going to the Democratic Republic of Congo with no documentation.
Rugwiro has been playing for Rayon Sports since July 2019 when he signed a two-year contract, after parting ways with APR FC.
Rugwiro is from Huye. He started his football career in the Kabutare football nursery to unearth and nurture children’s talents, under the coaching of Katibito Byabuze.
He left Kabutare in 2009 and joined the APR FC football academy. He moved into the first team of APR FC in 2013, and left APR a decade later, in July 2019, expelled with the other 15 players.
He started playing for the national team Amavubi in 2014.
