The Shyuha Festival, an automobile event that celebrates cars is gearing for a return. The event, now in its third edition, is slated for July 27, at Kigali’s Amahoro Stadium.
Previous events have featured vintage car models like the 1975 Peugeot 504 Coupe, 1975 Peugeot 504 Sport, 1987 Cadillac Fleetwood, 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser, 1989 Chevrolet, the 1968 Buick Riviera, 1976 Volkswagen Beetle; the 1998 BMW Z3, 2004 BMW 525 and 2008 Land Rover Range R.
According to organisers, the festival plans to partner with more car companies and dealers to give this event another facelift, “We are hoping to incorporate companies like Volkswagen, Mercedes Benz, Toyota among others because they have a rich car history and will boost the festival’s culture,” said Mr Bakuru.
