President Kagame on Friday evening inaugurated the Kigali Arena, a state-of-the-art events and sports facility with a capacity to host 10,000 spectators.

“I want to thank those who built this arena, Summa Company of Turkey, who built this arena in only six months. They worked day and night. And that is how we should all learn to work, fast and producing quality. 70% of those who built this arena were Rwandan and this is also the product of our very own resources as Rwandans” President Kagame said.

President Kagame further reiterated the aim of building the Kigali Arena, which is to host the best basketball players of Rwanda and Africa.

The Head of State also acknowledged the contribution of key Basketball sports personalities including Masai Ujiri, President of the Toronto Raptors, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver as well as Amadou Fall, in developing the game of basketball in Africa and moving it forward, through a program called “Giants of Africa”.

“Africa has giants and we must carry ourselves as Giants. That means it must be reflected in our actions. When your actions are exceptional then that is who you become. For Rwanda to be exceptional, it must be founded on our actions” President Kagame said.

Built within a six-month period, the Kigali Arena is set to host the NBA Africa Final games.
