THE maiden Okapya Soccer Tournament launched at Ekamuti Lodge at Ondangwa in August is scheduled for December. It is aimed at promoting and encouraging youth involvement in sport as a way to unite Namibians from different cultural backgrounds. Event organiser Sandro Ithana said the tournament aside from promoting unity in diversity will keep young people busy during the festive season and will likely reduce their involvement in crime. He said the launch was attended by various business personalities with Asser Ndongo Mbudhi, owner of Eleven Morning Stars – a soccer team from Okapya – also present. The tournament will feature both young and old in football, netball and volleyball. Ithana said the registration of teams has officially started with the draw of the tournament to be conducted at the Ekamuti Lodge on 8 December, and interested teams are requested to send representatives to attend the draw.
