NALASRA REPORT

Namibian Local Authorities Sports and Recreation Association (NALASRA) was launched in May in Okahandja.

This was a result of local authorities realising the need and importance of creating a platform to network and develop friendships, goodwill, and cooperation amongst one another. NALASRA was thus established to fulfill that need and promote such an atmosphere through local authority sport and recreation.
NALASRA aims to make sport and recreation accessible to both political and administrative personnel. The first national games was hosted in Otjiwarongo during April 2009 and the 10th anniversary celebrations of the games was hosted by Otjiwa-rongo Municipality in May 2018.
The Municipality of Walvis Bay will host the 11th edition of NALASRA Games from the 05 – 11 May 2019.Hosting the games will attract about 3 000 participants and spectators throughout Namibia to the town, thus contributing vastly to an economic boom of the town and marketing of Walvis Bay. Accommodation facilities in the town (including the Municipal Bungalows) will benefit significantly during the period, as well as all the local businesses, including the SMEs.
The event is the biggest Inter-Municipal sports event in Namibia and it is important that the Municipality is well prepared to host the NALASRA Games in terms of infra-structure (sports and recreation facilities), accommodation, security, health and emergency services.
The General Assembly was hosted by the Municipality of Walvis Bay on 20 November 2018 and new leadership was elected with Daniel Mouton from Walvis Bay Municipality elected as President with Penda Kashihakumwa from Ongwendiwa as the Deputy President. The Secretary General and his deputy are Gert van Wyk from the City of Windhoek and John Hinda from Otjiwarongo respectively. With Heinrich Mukume from Nkurenkuru as the treasurer and Loide Elaja from Omuthiya as his deputy.
The additional members are Corry Tjivahe from Otjiwaringo, John Naoadoeb from Gobabis, Anna-Liisa Korea-Jermia from Oshakati, Piet Adreki from Omuthiya and Theopholine Mack from Keetmanshoop.
