Chief of the Namibian Defense Force (NDF), Martin Pinehas, on Friday officially opened the eighth edition of the NDF Annual Sport Games at the Oshakati Independence Stadium in the Oshana Region.
In a media statement issued to Nampa on Friday, Pinehas stated that the NDF is celebrating its eighth edition of the games, being held under the theme; “Unity through Sport”.
“Today, we stand united, representing different services, formations and units from different backgrounds, all bound by a shared love for sportsmanship and camaraderie. Let us cherish this moment because finally we are all here together as members of the NDF from all corners of the land of the brave in the spirit of Harambee,” he said.
Pinehas stated that the ceremony is a clear demonstration of the unifying power of sport and that in times of difficulties, they recognize the power of sports to transcend boundaries and foster understanding among each Namibian.
'Beyond the field of battle, every Namibian is united on this sporting ground, where the language of unity speaks louder than the language of division. As we compete, let us not forget that our true victory lies in forging bonds that will last a lifetime. Let us embrace the opportunity to learn from one another, to appreciate the diversity that strengthens our collective spirit,” he added.
