It would be unthinkable if Namibia does not participate at the 2011 African Cup Olympic Games qualifiers in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. This was the sentiment of the President of the African Hockey Federation Seif Ahmed and its treasurer Claire Digby as they visited Namibia over the past weekend.

The President and Treasurer expressed their support of the Namibia Hockey Union (NHU) promising that they would lobby the Namibian government to provide financial support to enable the national hockey team participate in the Olympic qualifiers, to begin in less than 3 weeks.

10 Aug, 2011.. Five Kenya Police players are amongst eight axed from the mens national hockey team preparing for the 2012 Olympic games Africa Qualifiers due September 3rd in Zimbabwe.

Midfielders Godfrey Wakachunga, Felix Okoth and striker Moses Cheplait, Brian Saina (defender) and Duke Ombagi (goalkeeper) were dropped when the team was trimmed down to 21 players.

Police now remain with 3 players in the team. They are Francis Kayieko (goalkeeper), mid-fielders Willis Okeyo and Paul Birir.

Also dropped from the team are Tony Nyikuri of Greensharks, Francis Eshikuri of Strathmore and Gordon Owuor of KCA-U.

Strathmore make the bulk of the team with 11 players.
