Popular Democratic Movement Member of Parliament Johannes Martin has urged the finance minister to allocate enough money to the Ministry of Sport, Youth and National Service to fight social ills and give future generations hope. He said the ministry is grossly underfunded, with its allocation consistently being the smallest in the national budget, amounting to around N$200 million annually, while the Namibia Sports Commission, which is tasked with coordinating, controlling, developing and fostering sports receives less than N$ 100 million annually, a far cry of that received by its counterparts in other countries like Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Angola and Rwanda. He also called for the Ministry to be decentralized to better meet its mandate.
