WINDHOEK – Tigers Football Club and Brave Warriors’ free scoring left footed attacking midfielder Benjamin Nenkavu, has signed for Zambian mid table outfit Buildcon Football Club for an undisclosed transfer fee. Given the importance and benefits the beautiful game of football provides to unite broken communities and people from all walks of life, one could not help but to shed a tear or two of joy and ecstasy for the Brave Warriors’ near faultless performance against the visiting Guinea Bissau at the packed to rafters Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek, last weekend. There are hordes of former footballers to whom the beautiful game of football owes a massive debt of gratitude. These blokes need some kind of acknowledgement and though a significant chunk of them have gone the way of all flesh, others are still around struggling to make ends meet while others are going about their business, totally forgotten. One of those unheralded sons of the soil is none ot WINDHOEK – Write him off at your own peril, Namibia’s undisputed boxing king, Harry “The Terminator” Simon, is back with a bang. WINDHOEK – MTC Premiership record four time consecutive title winners Black Africa Football Club will face a test of character. The lethal combination of Namib Woestyn’s quartet of Laurentius “Daito” Hagedoorn, Haban Adams, Axarob Doeseb and Straal Auchumeb, is up to this day hailed by credible football pundits as the deadliest striking force in the history of domestic football. Lest we forget, we are certainly not gurus in all areas of global expertise, but whoever advises some of our lawmakers needs to have their heads examined. Namibia’s eagerly awaited Independence arrived just slightly late for some of the country’s hottest athletes, especially footballers. Windhoek - Brave Warriors’ versatile midfielder, Dynamo Fredericks, underlined his value for his club, Black Africa, with a near faultless display against old foes, African Stars, in a high-scoring league clash. The Minister of Sport (s) Hon Erastus Uutoni has rightly called some of the national sports bodies to order. Notably the NFA and NRU – our intelligent readers know these acronyms by now and for this sake, let’s stick to the NRU and their uphill battle. WINDHOEK – The inability of working together in harmony between outgoing president of the Namibia Football Association (NFA) Frans Mbidi and his right-hand man Barry Rukoro, has effectively rendered the association an ‘Auto Pilot’ institution. Windhoek – There were mixed fortunes for Namibian footballers plying their trade in the stinking rich South African Professional Soccer League (PSL) and abroad when competition resumed last weekend after an enforced short hiatus during the just ended festive season. WINDHOEK – Having narrowly lost out in the semifinals of the Namibia Rugby Union (NRU) Premier League title race last term, Khomasdal rugby outfit Western Suburbs have put the past behind them and look forward to start the season on a clean slate. WINDHOEK – Cometh the hour, cometh the man, internationally acclaimed retired footballer, one Ephraim Matsilile Sono, aka Jomo in social circles has certainly left a long lasting legacy in the annals of Namibian football. WINDHOEK – Perched in an unfamiliar 4th place on the MTC Premiership log table, the country’s flagship football league’s surprise package, Citizens Football Club remains the only unbeaten side in the current campaign. Heinrich, Sop-Sop or Soppies - call him whatever you like, but there is no doubting that Heinrich de Waal loomed large over the domestic rugby scene during the height of apartheid. The recent out of the blue renaming of a busy street in honour of departed self styled “football fan” one Robbie Savage, located in Swakopmund’s largest residential area, Mondesa to be precise, calls for a serious debate and thorough interrogation. Windhoek - The 26th edition of the annual Quinton-Steele Botes (QSB) Athletics Training Camp, held in the Namibia’s commercial capital Windhoek last weekend proved a huge success. WINDHOEK – With four points separating the two team going into the clash of the titans at the Mokati stadium in Otjiwarongo tonight at 19h00, hosts Life Fighters, aka ‘Kahirona’, will be out to halt Mighty Gunners’ fairy-tale run. Death has once again robbed the country a pair of noted athletes in the shape of iconic rugby player Heinrich de Waal and former Civics Football Club midfielder Reggie Willemse.
