Khomas Region Second Division Football Clubs held their extra ordinary annual general meeting on Saturday, during which they passed a vote of no confidence on their executive committee.
Out of the 16 football clubs playing in the Khomas Region Second Division, 13 attended the meeting at the Namibia Football Association (NFA) House in Katutura, to decide their future and who should be tasked with reforming one of the country’s feeder leagues.
Of the 13 clubs in attendance, eight passed a vote of no confidence in their exco, while four clubs voted for the exco. Out of the 16 member clubs, of the 13 that turned up on the day, 12 were eligible to
One of the forerunners who called for the extra ordinary annual general meeting, Immanuel Boois, a representative of City Boys Football, said that the Khomas exco failed to provide reports during the season, which led to the need to review how the league is run.
“We gave the Khomas exco 30 days prior to this meeting to prepare a financial statement, a report of the season that just ended, but the chairman failed to prepare the financial report,” he said.
He added that the chairperson’s concern and focus were more on NFA and Khomas club members’ call for a vote of no confidence and what he termed an unconstitutional meeting.
“After four hours of going back and forth with Khomas chairman and his exco, the member voted against the current exco. 16 clubs were represented.
Four clubs were not eligible to vote because they failed to submit their delegate forms,” he said, adding that NFA league director Mabos Vries and NFA secretary general Jochen Traut were present at the extra ordinary meeting, as were Khomas Region Second Division chairperson Peter Ndjulu and one of the exco members, while the 16 clubs were well represented by their chairpersons.
As a result of the vote of no confidence, the Khomas exco members, including Ndjulu, David Morgan (vice-chairperson), Helge Kapuire, Malakia Sheyanena, Gustav Sheetekela, Abed Kantewa, and are no longer part of the Khomas exco.
An interim committee consisting of Boois, Waldheim Tjitunga and Lazarus Xoagub was voted in to run league matters and is expected to be endorsed soon after all the due processes are followed, as advised by the NFA representatives present at the meeting. – Nampa
