Construction of Rwf4 Billion FERWAFA Hotel Starts

By Geoffrey Asiimwe

Ground-breaking work for the construction of the proposed four-star FERWAFA hotel started on Monday at the premises formerly occupied by Rwanda Police adjacent to the Rwanda Football Association (FERWAFA) headquarters in Remera.

The 120-room hotel is part of the FIFA Goal project development programme aimed at helping developing countries to establish infrastructure and facilities to boost the growth of the game.

The world football governing body has provided a grant of US$2,896,640 (approximately Rwf2bn) towards this 4bn project while the other half will be a loan from Rwanda Development Bank (BRD).
