Namibia Rugby Union president Dirk Conradie will resign when his current term of office expires next year.
Since taking over as NRU president in 1999 Conradie has never been far from controversy. As the first black president in the NRUâ??s history, he had to overcome a lot of opposition from the rugby establishment, while he also survived a few coup attempts along the way. He had to tackle racial imbalances on and off the field, while he also had to steer the NRU through precarious financial pitfalls, often paying bills out of his own pocket to keep the NRU afloat.
Rudolph Bester â?? Eleven Arrows
Konica Minolta Eleven Arrows midfielder Rudolph Bester is the Namibia Sport MTC Player of the Season, after receiving the most votes from the 12 coaches in the Premier League.
Civics are on the verge of winning the MTC Namibia Premier League title for the third year in a row.
With three matches remaining, they are seven points clear of their only remaining title challengers, Oshakati City, and with Civicsâ?? far superior goal aggregate, it will be virtually impossible for Oshakati to overtake them.
Namibiaâ??s Commonwealth welterweight boxing champion Paulus â??Aliâ? Nuumbembe was welcomed as a hero by President Hifikipunye Pohamba at State House on April 5.
Nuumbembe arrived at the Hosea Kutako International Airport where he was met by Deputy Minister of Youth and Sport, Pohamba Shifeta, the president of the Namibia Amateur Boxing Federation Kelly Nghixulifwa and several members of the boxing fraternity. They included Namibiaâ??s other two professional champions â?? Paulus â??The Hitmanâ? Moses, who holds the WBA Pan African and Intercontinental Lightweight titles and Jason Naule, who holds the WBA Pan African Junior Welterweight title.

History beckons for Civics
Namibiaâ??s Commonwealth Boxing Champion Ali Nuumbembe
Civics closed in on a third successive Premier League title after collecting maximum points away to Oshakati City and Golden Bees on March 17 and 18.
They beat Oshakati City 2-1 and Bees 1-0 to open up a lead of seven points at the top of the table, after their closest rivals all dropped points.
After close to five years of inaction, Harry Simon made a victorious return to the ring when he beat Stephan Ngueza of Gabon on a unanimous points decision over eight rounds on March 4.
But Ngueza can feel hard done by as he did everything but knock down Simon in a gutsy display in front of close to 1 000 fans at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
