The chief administrator of the Namibia Sports Commission (NSC), Freddy Mwiya, says the coronavirus pandemic must not discourage people from taking care of their sports facilities.

Mwiya, who recently visited northern Namibia, expressed dismay at the way some town councils and communities are neglecting facilities.

“I do understand that this is not in my domain but would really love to encourage people to look after the facilities we have.

“The truth is that there is a lack of sport facilities in all regions but we really have to take care of the ones that we have. “Town councils and people of the community can at least help with cleaning and just making sure that the facilities are taken care of,” Mwiya said.



Katima Sport Complex cleaned

Mwiya praised the people of the Zambezi Region after they cleaned up what looked like an abandoned Katima Sport Complex.

The complex was said to have been in a poor state before the chief administrator had visited the area.

“I would like to thank the people of Katima for having taken up the task to clean up their sport complex.

“The complex was in a shocking state just a few months back and now I see that it does look good after they decided to cut the grass and do a bit of cleaning,” Mwiya added.



Do not wait for advice

The NSC chief emphasised the importance of taking the initiative instead of waiting for advice from the top before action is taken.

The Independence Stadium in Windhoek and many other sport complexes in the regions have been in a terrible state for a couple of months now.

“These facilities will not only be here for the present but for the future too, given that those that are aspiring to become athletes will also need to use them.

“I am sure the ministry of sport will be encouraged to help with more infrastructure if those that exist are well taken care of.”
