SPORT Minister, Erastus Uutoni has commended the world governing football body, FIFA, for its swift intervention in the NFA dealings which rocked the Namibian footballing house.
The minister particularly gave his views on the reported ongoing infightings at the NFA, saying that such has affected the football sector in the country with many citizens showing concerns about the football status quo.
Speaking at a media conference in Oshakati on Friday, Uutoni added that a decision was taken to come up with a short term normalising committee to handle the NFA affairs.
“The committee will also organise the election process that will elect a new NFA executive committee since the current executive committee’s terms have expired,” he noted.
Uutoni added that the decision to elect the normalising committee was done by the FIFA Bureau of Council.
“They, however, did not reveal to us the names of the normalising committee members because FIFA and CAF will jointly visit Namibia during the next coming weeks in order to complete and kick start the process. Until such time, let us not speculate or preamp this important process for the benefit of our football,” added the minister. The world governing football body sent a delegation to Namibia last year to assess the situation and resolve issues that surrounds the NFA.
