Now, if the youth continue to make these mindless statements who will take them seriously?
Swapo youth are like Manchester United supporters. Those hangers on who join now are only getting in for the gravy. Now the glory hunters want to be more Catholic than the Pope, more Swapo than Toivo.
It will be easier for some Permanent Secretaries to award a tender to a deserving company without cashing in than for Swapo to be revolutionised. It would be easier for newly reshuffled PSes to make certain government departments function than to save Swapo from plunging down the abyss.
Do they know what revolution is? What do they really want to change or did someone hear the word on TV the other day and thought it would be a good idea to add it to the resolutions?
Those in the know say revolution (from the Latin revolutio, “a turn around”) is a fundamental change in power or organisational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time. Sounds like a Toby plan. Turn around so often that you start resembling a dog chasing its own tale. When did anything ever happen fast where Swapo is involved? The reshuffling of the PSes, anyone? And before anyone points out that there’s a difference between ‘the party’ and government, no there’s not! Ask comrade Jerry who once said, “the gaaament is Swapo and Swapo is the gaaament.”
I hope these youth consulted with former Swapo luminaries like the late Andreas Shipanga, Hidipo Hamutenya and Mishake Muyongo before they added this silly plan to their resolutions. It would seem change in that party doesn’t come without someone chucking his toys or chucking someone out of the party or into a dungeon.
Makes me laugh. Swapo organs trying to change anything is about as funny as a guy with a bladder problem insisting on wearing white pants. But maybe, just maybe these
guys actually have a good idea. If so, they would do well to change these:
Every politician over 60 should retire: Especially if you’ve had a job before Independence and have been deployed afterwards. Living in a country with over 50 per cent unemployment, it’s time the old war horses move aside so young, energetic people with ideas can take over.
A President’s last term should be declared official campaign time: This should give everyone a fair chance and the campaigns should actually be interesting. It would also give party operatives a fair chance to hold those with
leadership ambitions accountable in future
as promises will inevitably be made. It’s done anyway.
Scarves should only be worn in winter:
Can anyone please tell me whatagwan with the four seasons
Swapo scarf? Youth leaders
should be youthful, not just cut all their hair off and
reside on Facebook: Having two profiles on Facebook and agree with everyone’s post doesn’t qualify you as a youth. 35-year- olds are not youths as Swapo’s rules dictate currently.
If a guy is charged with a crime he should be expelled: Members who are defending fraud cases in court shouldn’t be rewarded with a plush seat in Parliament. Let him prove his innocence first unless you want to be known as the party of crooks, gomchas and millionaire civil servants who use the vote of the poor to line their pockets.
Poverty isn’t something to workshop and write reports about: It’s real, it affects a vast majority of our people, the people who voted for you guys. Swapo so far only provided evidence that it couldn’t be arsed about making sure our people live in the dignity they are entitled to. You see, poverty keeps people uneducated and unquestioning and the great unwashed masses make great voting fodder.
Do you really want to change that? Think again.
