Muinjo stays on as NFA chief
Former Namibian referee John Muinjo was re-elected as Namibia Football Association president at the body's elective congress held outside Windhoek at the weekend.
Muinjo defeated Ranga Haikali by 13 votes to 3, while his deputy, Kornelius Kapenda defeated challenger Johnny Johnson Doeseb, by 14 votes to 2. In total 16 members had voting rights to the congress that was marked by intense campaigns prior to its commencement.
Muinjo, who completed his first term as president, will continue for four more vowing to take Namibian football to greater heights. That, despite the dwindling fortunes of the national football teams on all levels, inadequate funding and a slow progress for football development on a grassroots level.
The congress also elected executive members which include Khomas Region's David Goagoseb, Stephanus Shimbike of Caprivi, Oscar Mulonda from Kunene and Naftal Ngalangi from Kavango.
Other members include Oshana's Frans Mbindi who also vied for the vice presidency but lost out with no votes, while Vaino Amukwa from Omusati and Jackey Gertze, who represents Women Football are all part of the exco.
