THE Namibia Football Association (NFA)'s interim secretary general Jochen Traut said Fifa and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) do not sponsor national football leagues.
NUMEROUS buildings in the central business district of the Namibian capital Windhoek stand empty.
Yet, within a one-kilometre radius, 40-year-old Albertus //Guruseb is reported to have frozen to death while sleeping on the pavement along Robert Mugabe Avenue.
The death of //Guruseb and another loss of life reported in southern Namibia within a week, as well as similar but unreported incidents, are an indictment of what level of empathy and care runs through the veins of our body politic.
A caring society would have put in place measures to accommodate the homeless, at least on a temporary basis or overnight, in office buildings that have stand empty for several years.
While bidding farewell to Pele Pele, as //Guruseb was known among his fellow homeless cohorts, owners of empty buildings should be urged to open their doors to protect street dwellers from the harshest of nature's elements.
Namibia is simply too young to degenerate into a careless and soulless nation.
