Robert Shimooshili NFA president

In a closely contested election held at the Mercure Hotel earlier today, Robert Shimooshili was elected as the new president of the Namibia Football Association (NFA), defeating his rival, Patrick Kauta, by a vote of 19 to 15.

The NFA has been plagued by infighting in recent years, which led FIFA to appoint two normalization committees to oversee the running of Namibian football.

These disagreements effectively brought the sport to a standstill for approximately three years.
