Hidipo rears his ugly head against Ntinda
By Concerned citizen
RDP-President Hidipo Hamutenya has once again shown his true colours as a common criminal by wielding guns at the Editor of Namibia Today, Asser Ntinda, for exposing his dirty tricks with the money of the Namibia Development Corporation (NDC) as emerged from the inquiry launched by the Presidential Commission.
The incident took place on
Saturday, 10 December 2011 when four RDP-men armed
with pistols, obviously sent by
Hidipo, ambushed Ntinda at his
business at the Single Quarters
trying to provoke him into overreacting
so as to give them an
excuse to harm him.
All witnesses, including the
Deputy Chief of the City Police,
Gerry Shikesho, correctly
concluded that the incident was
"politically motivated". It is also
clear that the perpetrators did
not act on their own accord but
were sent by Hidipo. How else
would Hidipo's driver be involved?
This incident is a wake-up
call to all patriotic Namibians
that Hidipo is notorious, contrary
to all the nice descriptions
he gives himself like 'democrat'.
The trick he has used in
the incident is the same we are
told he used in exile.
In the latest incident, he used
ex-Koevoet members the same
ones used by the colonial regime
to beat up Swapo sympathizers
and freedom fighters. It
is a known fact that most ex-
Koevoets who are still politically
active are members of the
RDP. Ntinda was right in drawing
an association between the
incident and the actions of
Koevoet and SWATF in 1989.
What is also interesting is the
fact that the incident took place
on 10 December, the International Human Rights Day, and
Namibian Women's Day on
which in 1959 black residents
of Katutura resisted forced removal
from the Old Location.
This shows no respect for the
day and for the struggle for independence.
What else can you
expect from enemy agents like
Hidipo and the Koevoets?
The reason for the association
between Hidipo and
Koevoet is clear to see: Both
Hidido, who owns the RDP,
and the ex-Koevoets serve colonial
interests. Once a puppet
always a puppet!
Also, Hidipo used guns, and
by implication violence, to
achieve his aim of eliminating
Ntinda. Where was Hidipo the
freedom fighter when he sabotaged
the struggle then? Where
was Hidipo the 'democrat'
when he used force to silence
Ntinda? Where was his democratic
principle of freedom of
speech, and of the press?
If Hidipo did what he did
while in government, imagine
what he will do once he is president
of this country. What you
have heard is enough to conclude
that we are dealing with
a dangerous snake amongst us.
If what you have heard is not
enough, you have seen what
Hidipo has done to Ntinda. If
you are smart, you only need to
look at a small manifestation of
a problem to see the bigger picture.
If you show me a seed I
will show you a forest. If you
show me the tip of the ice-berg
I will show you the whole iceberg.
But you do not want to
wait until you see the whole iceberg
of treachery that Hidipo is
capable of. By then it will be
too late. You cannot say, "Oh
well, it has not happened to me.
I am protected staying in the
white suburbs and protected by
body-guards". As they say,
"what goes around comes
Hidipo has powerful friends
in the western powers that is the
reason why he continues to
wreck havoc in this country.
When you wake up from your
slumber you will find those
powers having installed Hidipo
as President of Namibia. The
best defence is to expect anything
from someone who is desperate
to lay his hands on the
mineral wealth of Africa in general
and Namibia in particular.
With the current financial crisis
in the western world, that desperation
gets sharper and the
measures the West will be willing
to take to protect its 'interests'
even more deadlier.
The attack on Ntinda is not
an isolated event. The bell that
tolls for one will toll for all of
us. The bell that has tolled for
Ntinda affects all of us. An injury
to one is an injury to all.
Will you once again play ostrich
politics denying the ugly reality
happening on the ground?
History is a merciless judge and
those who fought for political
independence have the responsibility
to protect that independence
The creeping threat of neocolonialism
is not an academic
debate. It is a reality. You may
be next. We have only two
choices: to flee or to fight back
and to do so before it is too late.
What is yours? What are you
going to do patriotic
Namibians? An injury to one is
an injury to all!
