'african' is the definition.
(Rwanda is an African country)

'fish's name maybe grasped by sailors' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but

(Other definitions for rwandan that I've seen before include "From a central African country" , "African chap" , "Kigali native, perhaps" , "Eg, a native of Kigali" , "African native" .)
