Embattled Rayon Sports president Sadate Munyakazi has admitted that he helped fix Rwanda Premier League matches between 2014 and 2016.
Munyakazi, currently suspended for six months from all football activities, made the revelations on Monday as he implicated former club officials in misuse of funds and tax evasion.
He blamed his woes at the club on unnamed people who are, according to him, opposed to what he is doing at the club.
“When I was elected as club president [on July 7, 2019], I made it clear that I intended to fix what had been broken over the years and put everything to order. That is why I was fought by those who were involved in the mishandling of the club,” said Munyakazi.
Munyakazi revealed that over $1 million was stolen between 2014 and 2019 by the club's officials who used part of the cash to fix matches.
The claims will shed more light on match-fixing allegations that have been lurking in Rwandan club football and will help investigators unravel wider schemes.
