@visitrwanda_now also said in a tweet that; “On Tuesday we surprised @Arsenal training with a band of traditional drummers and dancers to celebrate the launch of the partnership and give the players a taste of Rwanda. Intore literally means the Chosen best of the best. The dance symbolises pride and the chant is the call for victory.”
