A campaign to oust incumbent Namibia Premier League chairman, Johnny JJD Doeseb from his seat is gaining momentum.
Clubs have ganged up to institute a motion of no confidence in Doeseb who has been in the hot seat for over a decade. He is being accused of having let football down in the wake of the NPL losing its trusted benefactor, MTC.
It is Doeseb’s inability to secure a new sponsor that has irked some club bosses who have now moved to the extent of having him booted through an extraordinary Annual General Meeting.
A planned annual general meeting which was scheduled for last week was postponed indefinitely pending the sourcing of a new sponsor. Doeseb had told Confidente Sport that it would be impractical to hold a general meeting before a sponsorship has been secured.
The disgruntled clubs however feel differently. They want him to go as soon as possible to enable a new chairman to take over that responsibility of sourcing for funding.
One of the club owners who are behind the move to oust Doeseb said the vote of no confidence is imminent. It will be moved at the extraordinary meeting. The club owner, who requested anonymity, accused the league chairman of running it as if it were his own homestead.
“The chairman has no respect for the NPL Board of Governors (BoG) and all he did was invite individual personalities who had no business with NPL to go and negotiate with potential sponsors, leaving the BoG members in the dark.” said the irate club owner who is spearheading the ouster.
It is not known when the said extraordinary annual general meeting will take place as a formal request for such a meeting has not been communicated to the league’s administration.
