Football At a Crossroads (Again)

Ranga Haikali

Namibia’s football is yet again at a point where hardly anyone can predict with certainty where it will go.

The last time the Namibia Football Association (NFA) congress met, it appeared that a very strong number of delegates were aligned when they chose Ranga Haikali as president after tumultuous infighting which saw lawyer and African Stars chief Patrick Kauta expelled.

Haikali was soon embroiled in fighting with the same people who put him in the position.

Kauta is back in football and vying for the NFA top post.

Football administrators should be reminded that the beautiful game is a language that could unite more Namibians at this crucial time.

May cool heads prevail with the right plans to lift Namibian football out of the doldrums.
