Rwanda female national team coach Grace Nyinawumuntu faces suspended

Rwanda national federation Ferwafa has temporarily suspended head coach of the She-Amavubi,Grace Nyinawumuntu in response to a series of contentious comments regarding the Ghana’s Black Queens

The suspension came in after Rwanda had suffered a humiliation defeat to Ghana in the African Cup of Nations (Women) qualifier, where Nyinawumuntu say that the Ghanaian players resembled men in their physicality.

The statement by Nyinawumuntu suggested that her squad had been intimidated by the aggressive nature of the Black Queens, which ultimately resulted in a demoralizing 7-0 loss in the game played in Kigali

Nyinawumuntu added:

They have girls who we think have male hormones. They are girls who are like men. Our team was scared… when they got to the pitch, they conceded because they were scared.

Following the contentious remarks, Ferwafa made an official announcement that Nyinawumuntu had been suspended “until further notice.” Her “inappropriate choice of diction” following the match between Rwanda and Uganda, in the words of the regulatory board, was the main factor in the ban.

As a result, Grace Nyinawumuntu, Rwanda’s head coach, will not accompany the team to Accra for the second leg of the qualifier. The Rwandan squad is now faced with an even more problematic predicament as a result of this development.
