Windhoek – Namibia will be represented at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Gabon, Mr Titus Kunamuene, the competitions Manager of the Namibia Football Association (NFA), said on Wednesday.

“This is the biggest level of African football and we have to ensure that the venue is ready for the games.
“We are responsible for the venue administration, ensuring that the matches are perfectly organised and consistent with all the other venues,’’ Kunamuene said.
Kunamuene said he is looking forward to his CAF assignment, although fresh from being General Coordinator at the 2016 Cosafa Under-20 championship in South Africa in Dec. 2016.
