In Cape Town, South Africa, Ghana’s Herbert Mensah has been elected president of Rugby Africa for a four-year term.

At Rugby Africa’s annual general meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, the renowned sports administrator and entrepreneur has been chosen to lead the continental body.

Herbert Mensah, who replaces Khaled Babbou as President of the Ghana Rugby Football Union, will lead Rugby Africa for the next four years.

With his appointment as a member of the Africa Rugby Executive committee in 2019, the former Asante Kotoko Board chairman’s progressive development of rugby in Ghana in accordance with world rugby standards over the past few years received greater recognition.

He authoritatively declared his expectation to contest for the presidency after he was assigned by the Nigerian rugby organization.

In accordance with a World Rugby youth development program called “Get Into Rugby,” Herbert Mensah, president of the Ghana Rugby Union for the past two years, focuses on recruiting, training, coaching, and inspiring the next generation of young women rugby players in Ghana through basic schools.


The new President of Rugby Africa intends to establish a positive and solid brand for the organization, increase rugby’s accessibility and visibility to all Africans, particularly youth, as well as ensure an increase in continental competitions and greater financial support for member associations.
