Katjiuongua unhappy with sports bodies

Namibia Sports Commissions (NSC) chairperson, Vivienne Katjiuongua, criticises sports federations and umbrella bodies for unplanned activities in the country.
Katjiuongua says there are some sport codes operating under the NSC bodies but do not consult the mother body about their planned events, warning such practices to end.
This habit, she says, has budgetary implications and other related negative consequences on the bottom line.
"In future, we will neither entertain, nor grant approval for hasty unplanned events," she fumes.
Katjiuongua thus wants all federations and other umbrella bodies to co-operate and submit all their activities for the year to the sports commission in advance: "This would allow the office to plan in time. Subsequently, this would ensure that as a country, we don’t attract penalties from our respective international bodies, with regard to attendance or participation,” she says.
Katjiuongua expressed these sentiments during a re-registration of sporting codes last Friday at the NSC headquarters.
