Ekandjo drops a bombshell on Martin

Mobile Telecommunication Limited giant, MTC has accused African Stars Chairman of

bringing soccer into disrepute.

MTC Chief Human Capital and Corporate Affairs Officer, Tim Ekandjo said this in a media

release responding to statement by Martin.

"MTC takes great offense to Mr Sydney Martin, chairman of Stars, statement that his club

will not spare MTC legal repercussions if MTC continues with the Namibia Premier

League (NPL) awards. In his statement MR Martin also said he will fight MTC," said


Ekandjo added, " I am disappointed in the short­sightedness of such leaderships, and that

a club like African Stars that receives over N$ 800.000 from MTC per year to run the

affairs of their club now has the audacity to threaten the very hand that feeds them

through the media instead of discussing this with MTC," he said.

Ekandjo also said that MTC will continue with its annual MTC/NPL awards on the 18th

July despite Stars not recognising, Black Africa as league winners.

“We are not threaten by Mr Martin and if his intention is to challenge us we wish to assure

him that Stars will be the biggest losers at the end of day.

Ekandjo said, "MTC have made it very clear that the date of the MTC NPL awards were

set (18th July) by the NPL and that MTC was merely consulted and informed, and that

MTC does not meddle in the affairs of football and having given that explanation for Star

to still threaten us instead of taking up their grievance with the league is uncalled for,"

said Ekandjo.
