Boxing AGM set for March

The Khomas Boxing Federation has urged that boxing development be spread equally across all regions.

30 January 2019 | Sports

The Khomas Boxing Federation (KBF) will hold its annual general meeting (AGM) in March, where new leaders will be elected.

The federation decided to hold the AGM after a lengthy meeting that took place on Saturday.

The current leadership's term is due to end in 2019 and the federation felt the need to have an elective AGM.

Amongst the issues discussed at their first meeting of the year was the need for more regional tournaments.

The federation further wants to invite other regions, in order to give Khomas boxers national exposure.

KBF chairman Jason Naule stressed the importance of getting their boxers to compete outside Namibia.

“The federation is also going to look into getting a competition outside Namibia's borders to try and get our future champions exposed,” Naule said.

He pleaded for financial assistance that will enable them to achieve their goals, given that the federation does not get any assistance from the national federation.

The KBF has 12 registered clubs on their books and the boxers have been fighting each other over the past years.

“We have realised that the financial troubles are not only facing Khomas but the whole country at large and it is one of contributing factors for not having regions inviting each other.

“The leadership crisis at the mother body has also deprived the federations of many important things,” Naule said.

The leadership of the federation is happy with the progress they have made so far, even with the financial challenges they have had to endure.

The meeting also discussed capacity building, with the need to have administrators and coaches at the top of the agenda.

The exact date and venue of the AGM will be communicated to all stakeholders.

“The federation is busy with the planning of the elective sitting and all positions will be up for grabs and only the registered clubs will be able to participate at the AGM.”

The current leadership is chaired by Naule, while Adriaan Coetzee is the vice-chairperson, Helvi Andimba the secretary-general, Kuara Tjimune the treasurer and John Amakali the PRO.
