Simbwa Set For 2nd Rwanda Expedition

page geneva;”>Ssimbwa, who is now with Express FC in Darfur taking part in the Cecafa Kagame Club Championship left SC Victoria University in January after amicably parting ways with the club, is set to commence his duties at the kick off of the 2013/14 Primus National Football League season.

It will be Ssimbwa’s second stint as coach in Rwanda after managing Atraco FC [defunct] in 2006 but never won any silverware with the club before he was sacked.

Goran was issued with a termination letter by Police FC administrators on Friday just over a month before his contract runs out on July 21.

“I am happy that I have managed to improve Police FC year after year though I never helped them win any silverware.

“I believe Rwandan football is heading to a pleasing level. The competition is high and what is more interesting is that Police, Mukura and AS Kigali are eager to battle it out against APR and Rayon Sports for the trophies,” added Goran.


Of recent Simbwa admitted that he had been approached by Police but couldn’t reveal secrets from two parties talk.

Ssimbwa’s first task will be to improve the team in the local Primus League where they finished second last season, and also performing well in the 2014 CAF Confederations Cup.

The former Cranes international is credited for winning the League trophy with Express FC in the 2011-12 season and also won the Uganda Cup twice with Mbale Heroes (2009) and Express FC (2007).

Ssimbwa said he will have to make some recruitment to strengthen his squad because they will be out to out muscle League winners Rayon Sport.

“I am happy to be back in active football because coaching is my passion and it’s one thing I know I do well enough,” said Ssimbwa.

Police FC also confirmed Louis Dodo Twahirwa as the new President of the Club, while Jean Paul Kalisa was appointed assistant coach and Desire Niyonzima retains his position as the goalkeepers coach.
