Girukwishaka brothers set for SC Kiyovu deal
After spending four months on the sidelines, 18-year-old winger Jean Marie Girukwishaka and his elder brother, Michel Girukwishaka, 22, are set to pen a professional deal with SC Kiyovu in the January transfer window.
Head Coach Gilbert Yaoundé Kanyankore, who managed the Rwandan pair during his time at Burundian giants Vital’O last season confirmed the development on Thursday.
He told the media, “Everything else has been settled but the boys are yet to get their Rwandan national identity cards,” Kanyankore noted. “They are Rwandans who have been staying in Burundi, that’s why they didn’t have the IDs.”
Kanyankore also said that, in addition to the duo, he needs to sign another two players ahead of the second round. “If we can get all these players, I think we will have a really good squad to compete for trophies, we are looking at other targets in local teams,” he said.
The Green Baggies are in seventh position on the log with 22 points, six points behind leaders Rayon Sports but with a game in hand – which they will play this Saturday against second-placed APR FC.
