A message from the Prime Minister (1999), Hage G. Geingob
Namibians love sports and their sport heroes. As sports are a great character builder, I am delighted with the Namibians’ obsession with sport; for, it means that our young people have a tremendous head start in building a better society characterised by striving for excellence, fairness, and sportsmanship. In this context, it is a matter of great pride for us that our most outstanding sportsman, Mr. Frank Fredericks, has devoted his time for promoting track and field sports amongst young Namibians. His zeal and enthusiasm have now found expression in the creation of the Frank Fredericks Foundation. With the creation of this foundation, support structures for aspiring sportsmen and women will be formalised. I am particularly delighted that the foundation not only aims to help sportsmen and sportswomen in helping them excel in sport but also in helping them develop their other capabilities by giving young, talented Namibians an opportunity for furthering their education by creating scholarship opportunities in Namibia and elsewhere.Mr. Fredericks has done us proud again. I wish him continued success in the years ahead and with the Frank Fredericks Foundation success in helping young Namibians to follow in the footsteps of Mr. Frank Fredericks. I wish the Frank Fredericks Foundation success in achieving all it’s objectives.
Hage G. Geingob.
Prime Minister of Namibia (1999) &
Patron of the Frank Fredericks Foundation</p>
