WINDHOEK, 13 FEB (NAMPA) – The chairperson of the Normalisation Committee at the Namibia Football Association (NFA), Hilda Basson-Namundjebo evicted embattled former Secretary General Barry Rukoro from Football House on Wednesday.
In a letter issued by the NFA, Basson-Namundjebo gave Rukoro one hour to surrender all NFA properties and assets, including the company car, to Meriam Tjivikua.
The letter further stated that Rukoro was no longer recognised by the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) as secretary general and his continued presence at Football House was unlawful.
Rukoro has been having running battles with former president Frans Mbidi for the past two years.
In January 2017, Mbidi relieved Rukoro of his duties as secretary general before back-tracking on his actions after being put under pressure by the executive committee, which said the former NFA president had acted unlawfully.
The executive further extended Rukoro’s term up to the congress in December 2018, which failed to take place, leading to intervention by FIFA, which last week appointed a normalisation committee.
