The AUSC Region 5 CEO Stanley Mutoya, is excited to see the RASA brand grow in the
manner in which it has since its inaugural edition in 2016.
“Today we have nine member countries taking part in the fourth edition. We welcome Angola into the RASA in this edition as they have had their own domestic awards, making Angola eligible for the 2019 edition of RASA. We celebrate this exponential growth given that at inauguration. In 2016 we only had five member countries taking part. This is an indication that we have a good product to commercialise,” he said.
Mutoya added that the awards ceremony us also an opportunity for corporates.
“We therefore present this product to the corporates in our Region who are interested in
associating with excellence and innovation in line with our theme - Celebrating Excellence,
Inspiring Innovation,” Mutoya said.
The primary mandate of the AUSC Region 5, as per the AUSC Region 5 Awards Rulebook
is to encourage all ten member countries to host national sport awards preceding the RASA.
The winners at country level are automatically entered as RASA nominees.
All these nominees are already winners in their own right, and now it’s all about triumph at the regional level.
Since the inaugural edition in 2016, the RASA event and the excitement it brings has grown at
country level during the hosting of national awards.
Winners of national sport awards look forward to be paired with.

The hosting of RASA starting this year in Namibia will be hosted on rotational basis, and member
countries will host in an alphabetical order.
