Apartheid friends join their former master
By Esau Muzeu
Nobody is surprised by the move, they belong there. This former Koevoet and SWATF many are living in the past. They do not know what actually there were doing. These Namibian fellows are very ignorant of the fact that there were members of the apartheid regime which PLAN defeated.
We need to educate these fellows
that this Country is no
longer in the hands of their masters.
We fought each other, we
killed each other and we maimed
each other. It is quite simple, the
only difference was the objectives,
and their aim was to hinder
SWAPO Party progress to self
While that of PLAN was to
liberate Namibia from the joke
of colonialism. If it had not been
the Apartheid fiends, Namibia
would have been long independent.
We suffered due the long
and bitter struggle, prolonged
by those who were assisting the
Theron said it all; they fought on the wrong side of the war.
In fact they ought to say
thanks to the SWAPO party
government that offered them
job opportunities. SWAPO
Party Government was very
considerate enough. It was not
easy; it's a tough decision,
given the hardship and maltreatment
we went through
during the liberation Struggle.
Koevoert and SWATF members
carried sadistic and nasty
atrocities, they tortured innocent
civilian and some lost their belongings.
They had no sense of
regret. That time never thought
that one day Namibia will be free
forever. I am very sorry, my fellow
Namibians, you should be
apologetic for what you did to
The veteran status they are
demanding is an insult to this
nation. We thought that part is
buried and we are now forging
ahead. To my surprise these
days some political parties are
using sensitive political platforms
to gain political points.
They are ignorant of the fact
that it is very insightful; it may
fuel hatred that we as a nation have removed for the sake of
Progress. The Koevoert issue
should not be used as a political
point. Come on Moongo,
Hamutenya and Venaani, use
I think what we offered them is enough. After independence,
many of the former Apartheid
fighters ran with their masters,
as badly informed as they are
always, thought South Africa
will never be free. It is these
former apartheid members that
are demanding veteran status.
Those who stayed were employed
together with the liberators.
We were put in one port,
given same position without
discriminating against them.
Moongo, Hamutenya and
Venaani, come on, you know
very well what these people
were fighting for. They fought
for apartheid regime, which occupied
Namibia illegally. And
you know very well what
SWAPO party fight was for is
to liberate Namibia.
I know you are used to Apartheid
politics of fooling and misleading
people. You misled our
nation during apartheid, telling
them lies about SWAPO Party.
Fortunately Namibian were not
fools to believe your lies, they
went ahead to fight and freed
this nation. Venaani I think you
are young you have a great future
ahead of you, so don't confuse
this nation else it will erase
you in the book of politics of
Think twice, be very careful
not disrupt peace and stability
that we enjoy today. It seems
you know nothing about peace
that is why you were on the
wrong side of the war. Peace is
very fragile it needs agility to
handle, therefore issues like that
of apartheid are bringing back
the bad memories of the past.
One would like to ask them why
they were fighting SWAPO
The politics of today should
focus on the development of
the Country; your speech
should talk about the needs our
people. How best we should
develop Namibia for the betterment
of our people. Those
people have bad history that
we do not want to hear be
minded of. We have reconciled,
we sank our differences for us
to do well and progress.
