Vincent Nzamwita, the president of Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA)

Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) has opened investigations into the alleged abuse of funds by Vincent Nzamwita, the president of Rwanda football federation.

According to a letter addressed a letter signed by the federation vice president Vedaste Kayiranga and the federation lawyer Emmanuel Ndagijimana, Vincent Nzamwita has been given a 48-hour ultimatum to call for a general meeting and explain how the federation’s finances are utilised.

Rwanda Eye has reliably informed that Nzamwita office have been siphoning funds for personal use.

Sources intimate that Nzamwita was given a few hours to explain how FERWAFA resources are utilized –threatening to take further action.

In a letter addressed to Nzamwita dated August 21, 2017, states ‘Mr. President, having worked with you on the Executive Committee of FERWAFA from January 2014, we’re not happy with the way decisions are being taken at most times, without our consultation”

The strangely worded letter questions how Nzamwita rewarded himself $20,000 (about Rwf16.8 million) offered by the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF).

The money was allocated as allowances for the President from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. FERWAFA executive committee members accuse Nzamwita of not paying taxes on the money received, noting that, “All this was done without the notification of the Committee in charge of federation resources.

The letter which is copied to the Minister for Sports and Culture, Julienne Uwacu, further warns that if Nzamwita does not call for a general meeting urgently, they will take further action.

Nzamwita’s issues come less than a month before FERWAFA’s general elections scheduled to take place on September 10-he is standing for re-election against Albert Mwanafunzi, a former member of the federation Executive Committee in charge of Competitions.

Prosper Ruboneza, the FERWAFA Spokesperson confirmed that they received the letter.

“We received the letter. Unfortunately the president is out of the country on official duty.
