The trip had suffered several hitches, the last happened a day after a T. T. Brothers Company Limited signed for sponsorship for the Black Challenge last Wednesday.The passports with Visas for the trip only arrived at 6:30p.m. on Thursday well after work at the Ministry of Youth and Sports had closed. So the remainder of the processing of the arrangement for the journey was made the following day and that was how come the team failed to travel on Thursday, “a source at the Ministry of Youth and Sports told the Daily Graphic at the weekend.
But after the travelling arrangements were complete, the 22-member contingent comprising 15players and seven officials departed on Saturday night via Air Namibia, according to the source at the Ministry.The Source explained that Air Namibia’s next flight was scheduled for Saturday and as such although the arrangement were complete by Friday, the team could not have left before Saturday.
