PUBLISHED: Mon, May 28, 2018Rwanda will pay the wealthy London club £10million a year for three years to have “Visit Rwanda” displayed on players’ sleeves and pitch-side advertising screens.

Critics of Rwanda’s president and Arsenal fan Paul Kagame believe he is behind the deal, which includes hospitality at the Emirates Stadium, match tickets and access to players for promotional work.

Last year Britain gave £27million to the Rwandan government for poverty relief as well as £37million for aid programmes.

It is one of the world’s poorest nations and suffered civil war and brutal genocide in the 1990s. News of the Arsenal deal sparked anger yesterday.
