Leaders in the Oshana Region have embarked on a quest to create a number of sporting facilities for the youth.

This is according to Oshana governor Elia Irimari, who outlined some of the projects the region has mapped out in an interview with Ewi lyaNooli.

Irimari said the region, together with the Ongwediva town council, was constructing a multimillion-dollar tennis court in Ongwediva as part of the plan to develop sports in the region.

The tennis court will be valued at N$5 8407 510 upon completion.

N$1 million is budgeted to be spent during the 2021-2022 financial year.

He further said that the Ongwediva town council together with the University of Namibia (Unam) have completed the concept design for the construction of a multisport facility in Ongwediva.

The d also plans to develop a sport stadium during the 2021 and 2022 financial year.

Irimari argues that the population of Oshana Region is growing and the youth are the majority.

“There are lot of young people in this region with diverse interests. Not all of them will take up sports as in interest, but we want to be able to provide a platform for those who are passionate and interested in sports,” he said

In terms of utilising these facilities once they have been developed, Irimari says the regional council will work with the different sports organisations and associations.

“We have a lot of sports associations such as netball, soccer and boxing. We will then be working with them to make sure they are all properly utilised. After their requests to develop these facilities, it is only right we collaborate with them,” he said.

“We need to develop our sports economy. There will no world-class athletes without proper facilities.”
