Rwanda FA (FERWAFA) has said that the fate of the Rwanda Premier League depends on government's COVID-19 prevention guidance. 

The federation was expected to give an update on the decision they're likely to make on the suspended league this week but now that has been left to that time the government will give an all-clear signal. 

Football and other sporting activities in Rwanda have been suspended since March 15 due to the prevailing coronavirus pandemic in the country. 

Ferwafa Secretary-General Francois Regis Uwayezu says that the federation decided to make the final decision on May 30. It's then that they will know whether to resume or cancel the season.

It is understood, however, among the proposals floated included restarting the league behind closed doors, ending the season and declaring the standings final, or voiding the whole season with no winners and relegation.
