Allegations and counter allegations of people being locked inside the town’s famed stadsaal and of illegal gatherings flew links, right and centre. Mistake was quoted, “It was an illegal meeting consisting of seven children.” More proof that the SPYL is not really a youth friendly organisation. Nou ja toe!
Everyone’s favourite wild west outpost just showed us all how hot a ticket Swapo’s congress is. People are already scheming and fighting tooth and nail for a chance to dine at that high table in December while their water runs dry in June. Quite strategic for people who won’t be able to tell you what the town council plan for next week.
Only in Rehoboth!
The Swapo schemer, town council manager and banned football administrator is also known as Willie and sometimes Willy, depending on where the Dax lorry broke down that day. The wily character surely knows how to force his willy into a controversy.
As the news broke that the town’s water was cut off indefinitely, perplexed residents wanted to know how Namwater could pull a stunt like that (increase the debt by over N$10 million) while they were collecting the water accounts on behalf of the troubled council for a year. Rehoboth has for quite some time provided indisputable proof that the poisonous cocktail of political interference, infighting and brutally corrupt or inept management can severely disable an entire community.
Our wily Willie serves as both Swapo organiser and manager of sorts at the council. This is the man who was banned for life from that bastion of superior corporate governance and accountability, the NFA.
Wily Willie is considered by many in the town and in football circles as a shit stirrer of note. No wonder Katrina Hanse Himarwa bliksemed him with a high heel.
How did Namwater manage to increase Rehoboth Town Council’s debt while they were collecting income from water on behalf of council. And why is Swartz pointing this out if he is a manager of sorts at the council? Did’nt anyone do calculations? Did’nt anyone monitor? But more importantly, whose hands are in the cookie jar?
If schools are closing because of your uselessness why are you not resigning? Better still, why aren’t political parties recalling these pathetic councillors?
It’s alleged that Namwater wanted to get their hands on money the council received after selling land. A case of the kak pot calling the kak lorry a stinker perhaps? The town council was probably paying hefty salaries and S&T with some of the money they made from selling water.
How do you move from a wannabe pariah breakaway republic in the 1990s, to an undesirable, mismanaged town to a hopelessly inept village council soon?
In a sea that is hopelessly amateurish, Rehoboth stands out head and shoulders as the paragon of hopelessly ham-handed local councils. Name a controversy or a hardship and Rehoboth has gone through it. But as the smart people say, you deserve the leaders you have. After all, you voted for them.
If I was a Rehobother, I would have attempted to obtain a protection order against all town councillors and managers at the town. But some will just see this as an excuse to drink copious amounts of Overmeer.
Rehobothers now believe that their God will deliver them from these assholes just as He delivered them from the Germans at Sam Khubis in 1915. Some are now convinced there were signs of a higher presence in the town on Tuesday.
Bizarrely, after Namwater closed their taps, the heavens opened and a hail storm hit the town on Tuesday, in the middle of winter. And on a cloud from Mariental Hanse-Himarwa flew in to rescue these poor sods.
You just can’t make this shit up.
