The above grievances where fully detailed in the 16 pages letters addressed to the Board of NCAA by an employee of NCAA written on the Monday, July 13th, 2020.
We further learnt that the board could not resolve the matter which lead to the suspension of three (3) young staff members and are alleged to have “disrupted” the NCAA operation, reads the statement.”
According to the lette dated 4 June 2020 from the Minister of Works and Transport that states that “the alleged extension of the Interim Executive Director Mr. Reinhard Gartner is thus neither endorsed, nor approved by the MWT Minister.

Therefore, SPYL is calling on the following: The immediate reinstatement of the suspended three young black female employees. The immediate return of their personal belongs confiscated as per the videos circulating on social media, The immediate public apology for the humiliation resulting from the contravening of Article (8) of the Namibian Constitution “Right to dignity”.We call on the NCAA to cease and desist the victimization of all the affected NCAA employees.
SPYL Recommends that the Ministry of Works and Transport, Anti-Corruption Commission, Office of the Ombudsman, Employment Equity Commission, Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Labour, Ministry of Public Enterprises, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Gender and Equality and Child welfare to intervene and bring NCAA to order.
