'Arrogant' Geingob under fire
28 June 2019 | Local News
This followed Geingob's “none of your business” response to a journalist Sackeus Ikela when asked why a closed-door State House meeting was held with the Mexican billionaire Alberto Baillères, who has offered to purchase the Erindi Private Game Reserve.
Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) leader McHenry Venaani said yesterday there was no excuse for Geingob's conduct towards the journalist.
According to Venaani, Geingob is increasingly becoming indifferent to Namibians who question his governance of the country, adding every Namibian has the right to ask questions about how their country is run.
“His power must be used for the betterment of the Namibian people. Arrogance is not leadership. I wonder if it is power that has gone to his head,” Venaani said.
Another thing that bothers Venaani is that the president puts his hands in his pockets when meeting other heads of states or billionaires.
“Why can't he take one hand out? Standing with his hands in your pockets when you meet other presidents at international events is not etiquette,” Venaani added.
