Kampala, January 22, 2024 – A delegation from Namibia, led by the incoming president and the first-ever female president-elect for Namibia, Hon. Dr. Nandi Ndaitwah Netumbo, paid a courtesy visit to Hamz Stadium at Nakivubo War Memorial Grounds earlier today. The delegation, which also included Uganda-Namibia Ambassador H.E Hon. Godfrey Kirumira, expressed great fascination with the exceptional work carried out by Hamis Kiggundu in realizing an advanced world-class stadium in Uganda.

The President-elect extended an invitation to Mr. Kiggundu to visit Namibia and replicate his success by building a world-class stadium for the country. The visit marks a significant moment as Mr. Kiggundu is now set to undertake the construction of a second national stadium for Africa, this time in Namibia.

Notably, Hamis Kiggundu built the Nakivubo stadium with solely African input, from financing to engineering, showcasing the potential for Africans to independently contribute to the development of Africa. The President-elect commended Mr. Kiggundu’s efforts, highlighting that Africans can effectively undertake major projects that contribute to the continent’s development.

The Hamz Stadium, slated to host matches for AFCON 2027, boasts state-of-the-art facilities, including ample parking, modern gyms, training facilities, offices, and a health facility for sportsmen and women. The stadium also features amenities such as a modern basketball court, netball court, a boxing ring, and first-class seating areas for VVIP, VIP, and ordinary spectators. Additionally, it includes hostels for players and delegates in residence.

The stadium’s football pitch meets the standard size requirements approved by a team from the Confederation of African Football, ensuring it is fit for hosting prestigious events. The visit and subsequent collaboration between Uganda and Namibia underscore the potential for pan-African cooperation in developing infrastructure that contributes to the continent’s growth.

As Hamz Stadium becomes a symbol of African self-reliance and development, it sets a positive precedent for future projects that prioritize African involvement in every aspect, from planning to execution.
