Manipulation in its entirety involves direct physical actions that are systematically performed illegally with the ultimate hope and desire to remain undiscovered. The football-obsessed institution popularly known as Dobra (St Joseph’s Secondary School) has without a shadow of doubt produced the finest footballers that graced football pitches across the length and width of then South West Africa (SWA) now Namibia, back in the day. Whilst we must applaud the hastily scrambled together executive committee of the country’s elite football league, the Namibia Premier League (NPL) under the shrewd stewardship of Patrick Kauta, for the smooth sailing manner in which they conducted business, yours truly is obliged to send a word of caution against complacency. WINDHOEK – Way back in 1981, almost three and half decades ago, the usually laid back enclave Orkney, holed up in Western Transvaal, with her vast open spaces meandering lazily through the town, local organizers packed away their trade tools to welcome the star-studded amateurs from then South West Africa (SWA) Currie Cup Football team for the annual showpiece. WINDHOEK - The Namibian senior rugby team, the Welwitschias defeated the visiting Kenya by 53 points to 28 in the decisive 2018 Rugby Africa Gold Cup, at a packed to te rafters Hage Geingob Stadium in Windhoek on Saturday. WINDHOEK – A distraught mother of a national junior hockey player is crying foul after her daughter was unfairly grounded from the national under-16 girls hockey side. Racism in Namibian sports is rife and has become a daily experience for many athletes in many a sporting disicpline. One should perhaps acknowledge the myth-busting performance of the barefooted African American sprinter Jesse Owen at the Berlin Olympics in 1933. Without a shadow of doubt, the Ramblers football team that swept their opponents aside with a certain measure of brutality during the second edition of Premiership football in democratic Namibia, was arguably the most exciting team in the business at the time. Namibian football is riding the crest of a global wave of growth, spearheaded by the national senior football team, the Brave Warriors, which has silently contributed massively to the country’s economic activities in trying times. WINDHOEK – With domestic rugby still reeling in shock trying to recover from the sad news of the national senior team, the Welwitschias’ last-minute withdrawal from the South African Provincial Currie Cup second tier competition, the oval ball game has been thrown into further turmoil. WINDHOEK – The love-hate romance between Tigers Football Club and long serving assistant coach Peter “Oubaas” Mokwena, also known as “Boere” amongst his circle of friends, has hit an all-time low. Generally, we tend to stumble when estimating probabilities for instance if someone says “never” , yours truly usually register this as a minuscule probability greater than zero , since never cannot be compensated by a negative probability. Had young Steven Carr, not decided to leave his native land for the United Kingdom to explore the rest of the world, he could have easily played for the land of his birth at all youth levels including the senior national football team, the Brave Warriors, if his immerse football talent is anything to go by. WINDHOEK – The serial merry-go-round of football coaches in the domestic topflight football league, the MTC Premiership has claimed another victim before a single ball is kicked. Namibians got a rude awakening in international football that if you don’t take the few goal-scoring chances created you are likely going to pay heavily for missing gilt-edged goal-scoring opportunities. The history of Namibian football would be totally incomplete and grave travesty of justice if written without mentioning exciting Khomasdal outfit Atlanta Chiefs Football Club – let alone ignoring the contribution of footballers from that neck of the woods towards the overall growth of domestic football. WINDHOEK – Khomasdal leading rugby club Western Suburbs held its season ending Prize Giving Function at Suburbs Park in Windhoek on Saturday evening that saw a horde of deserving squad members handsomely rewarded for their hard work and dedication. Windhoek – The leadership of the Namibia Rugby Union (NRU) is still at loggerheads with the headship of its commercial and operations entity, Namibia Rugby (Pty) Ltd, which the union feels operates in isolation and many a time undermines the mandate of the NRU. As a microcosm of life, sport and football in particular, inevitably contains its own moral conundrums where rules and regulations are constantly shifted in the effort to frame something, which more closely corresponds to what feels right and just. WINDHOEK – Dethroned Namibian champions Tigers Sport Club has announced the appointment of Dino Ballotti, as the club’s chairman after the Executive Management Committee meeting held on the 10th of this month.
