Imbuwa appointed commissioner at CAVB

NAMPA



Namibia Volleyball Federation (NVF) president, Hilary Dux Imbuwa, has been appointed as a member of the marketing commission of the Confederation of African Volleyball (CAVB).

His appointment was confirmed in communication from CAVB president Bounchra Hajij and NVF chief Helmut Angula.

“I am pleased to confirm your appointment as a member of the marketing commission within our confederation as agreed at our board meeting held in August 2021,” a section of Hajij’s letter read.

Angula said Imbuwa has been instrumental in the reforming of policies and the constitutional framework to the betterment of the NVF.

He said Imbuwa, his executives and the board have transformed the federation’s structures with the aim of creating capacity at regional level, which is in line with the 2020-2025 NVF strategic plan.

“Imbuwa’s appointment will serve as an opportunity to expose Namibian volleyball to different platforms through the continental body,” he added.

On the right track

Approached for comment on Monday, Imbuwa said his appointment means Namibian volleyball is on the right track to reach its international peak.

“This will not benefit me alone but will include the whole Namibia. It opens doors for me to market Namibian volleyball to the whole African continent and I am going to market the country as a whole in terms of sport,” he said.

NVF secretary-general Donald Doeseb and Far North Volleyball Association secretary-general Festus Hamukwaya welcomed Imbuwa’s appointment, saying it will expose him to opportunities that can ultimately benefit Namibian volleyball.
