History reveals that Katutura glamour football club African Stars was birthed by an enthusiastic group of young men of OvaHerero/Ovambanderu descent in desperate search of challenging the dominance of rival teams such as Tigers and Cape Cross Football Clubs at Windhoek’s old location in 1952. Born in the harbour town of Walvis Bay on the 30th of October 1981, Ndeshi grew up in the city of bright lights (Windhoek) in the Wanaheda residential area, a sub-section of Katutura.
