A media statement availed by the NFA on Thursday said Referees Manager Absalom Goseb and National Referees Chairperson Erastus Shilunga will on Sunday fly to Cairo to attend the CAF Referees Development Workshop from 13 to 15 March.
The workshop aim to improve the standard of referees in Africa through sharing and exchanging ideas; networking and connections; standardising their vision and looking for future collaborations between member associations and CAF.
Shilunga and Goseb will be expected to deliver an eight minute presentation on, amongst others, organisational structure; number and categories of referees; appointment system or criteria of selection of international referees; development programmes including those for youth and women; competitions; technology; challenges and future plans.
Meanwhile, NFA Technical Director Timo Tjongarero left Namibia on Wednesday to attend the CAF Technical Directors Seminar in Rabat.
The course starts on Friday and ends Monday.
The objective of the seminar is to review the entire CAF Coaching Licensing System and align it with other confederations to obtain an equivalence agreement with them.
The meeting will also introduce a new CAF Coaching Licence Convention.
Tjongarero is expected to make a presentation on activities within the NFA.
