—- The executive committee of the Namibia Football Association on Sunday announced that it had dismissed Frans Mbidi as president with immediate effect.
At a press conference at Soccer House, NFA vice president Dr Naftal Ngalangi said the ‘drastic action’ was necessitated by Mbidi’s failure to adhere to his fiduciary duties in the NFA constitution.
These included not convening executive committee meetings in due time; failing to implement executive committee decisions; misrepresenting executive committee resolutions to Fifa and Caf and being disloyal to the NFA; and rendering the NFA secretariat ungovernable.
It also accused Mbidi of corruption and added that they would open a case against him with the Anti-Corruption Commission.
Ngalangi said that he would take over as the NFA acting president until the NFA elective congress on 12 January 2019.
Ngalangi accused Mbidi of accepting a bribe at the Fifa conference in Moscow in June from a Moroccan official to vote for them for the 2026 World Cup.
