Mtima wutye upopye mwenyo utya mwena! I am undecided whether to comment or not, to the recent happenings in the mighty Party. My late mom would have said: "Ouyuni owehongo lyekuwu mukweni oteli toola po, meaning ownership of something precious can change hands easily if the owner does not hold to it dearly:

The time is now for retrospect thinking and to jealously guard the party from fragmentation. Can the Party afford to entertain the "I told you?" I rest my case and leave politics to the politicians. I have followed the various operations of commissioner Kashihakumwa but the latest raid on Chinese Shops in Oshakati and Oshikuku was very interesting and thought provoking to say the least. Indeed the long arm of the law eventually caught up with the Asian businessmen and women even though only a fraction of their crimes has been unveiled.

We are all aware of the plastic system as opposed to the basket system where workers 's job descriptions include emptying the boss' plastic containing last night's sh@#t, and make sure neither Minister Doreen Siyoka nor President Pohamba hear about it. Any leaking of the information, will results into the worker kissing her/his N$450 a month wage goodbye.

Apparently Commissioner Kashihakumwa does not know why Chinese do not bank their money in Namibian banks. Anuwa to the amusement of the Chinese the Commissioner who recently addressed the Chinese community said: "To us law enforcement agents; we see the refusal of the Chinese to bank as a contribution to criminal activities."

Really commissioner you seriously do not know? You of all the people as effective as you are in combating crime? For your information Commissioner Sir, the following is not a secret:

- All Chinese shops are unregistered, illegal and commission free "bureau de change".

- They all specialise in US Dollar buying.

- Their prime customers are Angolans.

- The U$ are exported to China in boxes.

- The Nuctech scanners at Hosea Kutako International airport are under strict instruction to ignore any U$ boxes destined to China and have taken an allegiance oath not to divulge their contents.

It is because of these patriotic Chinese U$ dollars exporters, that today;

China's Foreign Reserves Mountain has reached $3.44 trillion after having increasing 25 percent in 2010 alone. So why are they denying us to build our Foreign Reserves Hill as well?

I am glad you said that you are not applying handbrake. You will continue and I suggest you clean up all the filth and do not leave any U$ boxes behind. You do not need to invent the wheel just do little amendment to Operation Murambatsvina (Clean up in Zim in 2005). Good luck!

In the meantime, I will do my part by informing your superiors that there is a need for a Kashihakumwa in each region.
