Photo: Nampa WINDHOEK Tangeni Nakale, the owner of the Tangeni Nakale Athletics Kids Fun Run Club, hosted a Christmas fun day for kids in Okuryangava and Okahandja Park informal settlements yesterday. Initiated in March 2015 by Nakale, a former long distance athlete, the Tangeni Nakale Athletics Kids Fun Run, traditionally held in Okuryangava, is aimed at encouraging young people in Okuryangava and Okahandja Park informal settlements to participate in sport, while also identifying potential athletes among the youth. The event attracted about 35 participants, aged between 8 and 17. Nakale said that the Christmas celebration is used to say thank you to the kids who compete in all the fun runs throughout the year. “Most of the kids are gone FIFA-FIFPro deal great for Namibian football - NAFPU WINDHOEK The Namibia Football Players Union (NAFPU) is convinced that the agreement between the International Federation of Football Associations (Fifa) and the International Federation of Professional Footballers (FIFPro) will bring about improvements in local football. NAFPU secretary-general Olsen Kahiriri said the agreement is a stepping stone towards the local union’s eternal recognition globally. “Gone are the days when we run around seeking recognition,” he said. The Fifa-FIFPro agreement is a six-year cooperation agreement that was signed on November 6, 2017 with the aim of strengthening relationships between the two organisations and improving the governance of professional football worldwide. “With the signing of this agreement and the Universal Declaration of Players Rights, as adopted by the executive committee of the World Players Association, we are determined to protect the fundamental rights of all players in Namibia,” said Kahiriri. Kahiriri added that as a member of FIFPro, the union is excited and determined to achieve its set objectives with ease. He again stressed the need for the establishment of a national dispute resolution chamber that will be tasked with the sole mandate of resolving differences between clubs, unions and sports associations. “Some countries have this chamber that deals with issues of disputes in sport and it is about time we do the same,” he added. The World Players Association, formally established on December 5, 2014, brings together 85,000 players across professional sports through more than 100 player associations in over 60 countries. The Universal Declaration of Player Rights was adopted on holiday but before everyone drives out of Windhoek for the holidays I just wanted to say thank you to some of those kids with the gift hampers that were sponsored by Marathon Sugar,” he said. At the same occasion, formers throughout the year. “We want next year to be a better year than 2017 but that will only happen if the corporate world comes on board and by the executive committee of the World Players Association in France on April 7, 2017. This declaration contains 17 articles which, among others, state that every player has the right to a sporting environment that is well governed, free of corruption, manipulation and cheating and which protects, respects and guarantees the supports these young athletes while at the grassroots level, as they are the future stars,” said Nakale, adding that the held in March. -Nampa The athletes who received outstanding performance 1.

Friday, December 15 2017| NEW ERA NEWS 43 Remembering Mvuso Martin Mbebe – a giant of African sport Remembered... late Mvuso Martin Mbebe Andrew Bonani Kamanga It is now two years since the passing on of Mvuso Martin Mbebe of South Africa. The late secretary general/treasurer of the African Union Sports Council (AUSC) Region 5 was a larger-than-life character, a man gifted with unique analytical skills and unparalleled communication ability. Mbebe was involved and established himself in South African and African sport during the negotiations for of various South African sports organisations in 1990 after the unbanning of the African National Congress (ANC) and the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) by the then South African government. Together with other South Africans, Sam Ramsamy (swimming), Danie Craven (rugby), the late South African Football Association (SAFA) President, Solomon “Stix” Morewa and other African sports administrators, agreement was reached for the return of the erstwhile banned and pariah state of South Africa to international sport. The crowning glory of the end of South Africa’s isolation from international sport was its participation events, the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. South Africa was welcomed back into international sport with a lot of pomp and fanfare. Some of the people who performed a lot of the behind-the-scenes work was Mbebe. He worked with and learnt from some of Africa’s top sports administrators such as Tomas Sithole, Issa Hayatou, Ishmael Bhamjee and many others. When the Supreme Council for Sport in Africa (SCSA) Zone VI was established in 1981, it was more of a talk-shop to discuss issues pertaining to development of sport in Southern Africa. Led by Macleod Chaora of Zimbabwe (chairman) and Mark Jimu Tembo (secretary general/treasurer) of Malawi during the most of the 1980s and early 1990s, the organisation developed slowly and became the leading regional sport authority of Southern Africa. The advent of the brash, confident and highly assertive Boyce Sebetlela of Botswana coupled with the new chairman, Dr Vetumbuavi Veii, from Namibia, changed the ball game in so far as the SCSA Zone VI was concerned. Their arrival was also accompanied by the establishment of the full-time secretariat for the organisation led by Charles Dzimba, a veteran sports administrator from Zimbabwe as general manager for the SCSA Zone VI. The departure of Sebetlela to take up a cabinet appointment in his native Botswana, paved the way for the emergence of Mbebe as the new secretary general/ treasurer of the SCSA Zone VI. Together with other team members at the SCSA Zone VI, Mbebe was a champion of the transformation of the organisation establishing a forum of technocrats to advise the council of ministers. Furthermore, the organisation established, among other programmes, the Under 20 Youth Games for the region. Mbebe oversaw the transition of the SCSA Zone VI organisation to the current AUSC Region 5. Over the years, Mvuso worked with his colleagues to make the AUSC Region 5 the most active and organised unit under the auspices of the continental African Union Sports Council (AUSC). Mbebe was always a passionate and fearless champion for sports development in the region and Africa as a whole. His enthusiasm and energy were hallmarks of his work within the sports organisations of his country, the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) as well as the AUSC Region 5. It is no great surprise that when South Africa was requested by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to host the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, Mbebe was chosen to be the CEO of the Local Organising Committee (LOC). He led that organisation with his usual meticulousness and the 2013 AFCON was a memorable event consolidating South Africa’s position as host par excellence for international and continental sporting events. He continued his good work with the 2014 African Champions Tournament (CHAN) for home-based football players on the African continent, which the event in Africa. Mbebe was a that “Everything worth doing is worth doing well”. Sport is now a multi-billiondollar industry employing millions all over the world. Africa’s share of this fast growing industry is far less than 10 percent. Of course, apologists of the status quo would argue that this is because of the continent’s weak economy compared to other continents. However, the fact remains that the relevant authorities have not made a good argument for sport, first of all , as public health intervention and secondly as a viable industry capable of alleviating abject poverty on the continent. There is a ridiculously low prioritisation of sport on the African continent. This is indeed a great betrayal of the noble ideals that people like Mbebe have fought for. Mbebe has run his race. for those remaining to carry the baton. South Africans and the Mbebe family can be rest assured that Mbebe’s passing on was not just their loss. It was a terrible loss to Africa. Go well, Great Son of the Soil. Rest in Peace! – The Southern Times
