Senegal’s President hosts Kagame at basketball game

Senegalese President Bassirou Diomaye Faye has hosted his Rwandan counterpart, Paul Kagame, at a basketball game in capital city, Dakar.

The game took place on Sunday evening and featured Senegal’s AS Douanes and Rwanda’s APR Basketball Club. Both teams are competing in the Basketball Africa League.

Mr Kagame is among the first leaders to visit Senegal since Mr Faye, 44, was sworn in as Africa’s youngest democratically-elected leader in April.

The Rwandan president’s visit to Senegal seeks to boost bilateral ties and promote cooperation in areas including trade, tourism and governance, the Rwandan presidency said.
