Who hurt you, Mr President?
16 August 2019 | Columns
This has manifested in personal attacks on an academic and roughshod comments about who the Kavangos voted for during the 1989 elections, among others.
And after spinning rainbows and promises that these meetings were not political and an attempt to campaign for Swapo at taxpayers' expense, complaining about Kavangos voting for the DTA has detonated a suicide bomb in his spindoctor camp. Far from asking Namibians why they are angry, Geingob should be asking himself that question.
But if that kind of introspection is beyond a man of his stature, then let's rather ask: Who hurt you Mr President? In Oshikoto you accepted an apology from Swapo regional coordinator Armas Amukwiyu for daring to stand against your faction at the 2017 ruling party congress.
Who else do you think owes you an apology? Maybe you should draw up a list so that we can start organising mass meetings where these errant humans can pay homage.
Mr President, in all seriousness, we want you to calm down. You don't wear vexation well. We want more focus on the pressing issues of the day.
Why do we still care who voted for whom in 1989? There are bigger fish to fry, Mr President.
We need you operating at full throttle, while tackling our joblessness, our hunger and our hopelessness. Just this week a report came out that said 39% of your people are severely food insecure. We can't eat the votes from 1989 Mr President! Calm down and tackle our plight.
Don't use government platforms to fight your personal and political battles.
That does not sit well with your image as a constitutionalist who should know about the separation between party, state and a shebeen brawl.
You are still our president and we need you to focus calmly on what you promised us.
