Haikali suspended by NFA exco


THE president of the Namibia Football Association, Ranga Haikali has been suspended with immediate effect by the executive committee of the NFA.

In an email sent by NFA vice president Izak Fredericks on 13 August, Haikali is accused of several misdemeanours, and ‘suspended with immediate effect, pending investigation of several allegations against you.’

Some of the reasons for his suspension include that he acted beyond his powers and authority when he failed to inform the NFA executive committee about allegations made against its secretary general Franco Cosmos.

He is accused of corruption in that he instructed the NFA secretariat to organise a contract with PC Centre for IT services – a company in which he is a share holder.

He is accused of organising a contract for another company that he is a share holder in, Africa Personnel Services, for fumigation services to the NFA, while he is also accused of undermining resolutions passed by the NFA executive committee.

Haikali is accused of attempting to coerce the executive committee on the ‘unconstitutional appointment of Andreas Andreas to serve as the PRO of the NFA exco without advertising the position,’ while he also failed to declare his interests as a director of FNB, when he arranged an overdraft facility on behalf of the NFA without the approval of exco.

He is accused of initiating the renovations of an office of the Oshikoto Regional Football League without the approval and knowledge of the exco, while he apparently also told Fifa officials that he will revoke the employment contract of Cosmos, causing ‘unnecessary animosity amongst employees.’

The statement goes on to say that the allegations against Haikali will be referred to the ethics committee of the NFA and that his suspension will remain in effect until the next congress or until the exco reverses the decision.

It further adds that Haikali is prohibited from dealing in any football-related matters, or in any financial affairs of the NFA, including transacting on the bank accounts of the NFA.
