Athletics Namibia’s presidential elections ended in a dramatic tie on November 22 when the two candidates Alpha Kangueehi and Frank Fredericks each drew four votes. The incumbent, Kangueehi, held the elections in Katima Mulilo in an attempt to increase his chances of winning a second four-year term as president. The venue made it difficult for other AN regions to attend and according to the constitution only executive council members would be refunded for their travelling and accommodation expenses.
African Stars had to pull out all the stops before beating Chief Santos 3-2 at a packed Khomasdal Stadium on Saturday. Stars dominated possession in the first half and created numerous scoring chances, with Brouwers Litombo and Edison Muheua providing a steady stream of possession from the wings. Heinrich Kazerua came close to scoring on two occasions, before Muheua headed against the crossbar from a fine centre by Kazerua.
