Amutenya is the spouse of a Namibian diplomat from the embassy or permanent mission of the Republic of Namibia in Addis Ababa.

Kavango East women footballers ‘bounce back’
Buffalo Horns women’s football team won the Namibia Football Association (NFA) Women Football Bounce Back Cup after defeating Rundu Smart Ladies 3-0 on Monday.
In an interview with Nampa, NFA public relations officer for women’s football in the Kavango East Region, Deon Katjariua said the cup serves as preparation for teams that will compete in the Women’s Football League set to commence in July this year.
The teams that took part in the tournament that started on Saturday and ended on Monday are Rundu Smart Ladies, Eli Babes, Buffalo Horns, NamPol Ngandu, DK Academy and Sauyemwa Beauties.
Katjariua said Buffalo Horns won the Bounce Back Cup by first playing against DK Academy and winning 2-0. They then lost to Rundu Smart Ladies 0-2 but made a comeback winning 2-0 in the semi-finals against Eli Babes.
Their last game was against Rundu Smart Ladies where they drew but won 3-0 on penalties.
Buffalo Horns received 30 gold medals and N.dollars 2 000 as the winning team while Rundu Smart Ladies in second place received 30 silver medals and N.dollars 1 500.
NamPol Ngandu who came in third received 30 bronze medals and N.dollars 1 000.
Katjiriua said all six participating teams received balls valued at N.dollars 2 000 from the N.dollars 25 000 seed money from the NFA.
This, he said, is to ease the challenge of non-availability of playing equipment for village-based teams.
He said in the near future they would like to take the tournament to all constituencies in the region, adding that during the tournament they were also scouting in order to feed the national team with players.
“Currently from the Kavango East Region we only have Anna Thikusho who hails from Mabushe village playing in the national team,” he said.
Thikusho is the top goal scorer now in the national team, he added.
Rundu Urban Constituency Councillor, Vicky Kauma who attended the games applauded the organisers for their dedication to ensuring that young people are kept off the street with eventful activities.
