NUJOMA TARGETS IMPERIALISM, GAYS("We must unite and support Zimbabwe")
The Namibian ^ | 8/19/02 | MAGGI BARNARD

Posted on 08/19/2002 6:52:15 PM PDT by LarryLied

PRESIDENT Sam Nujoma told over 400 delegates at the Namibia Public Workers Union (Napwu) Congress on Friday to unite and support Zimbabwe.

"Today it is Zimbabwe, tomorrow it is Namibia or any other country. We must unite and support Zimbabwe. We cannot allow imperialism to take over our continent again. We must defend ourselves," Nujoma told delegates gathered at the Namib High School.

He said he had not heard any union member in Namibia protesting the recent action of the British government when they stopped a Zimbabwean deputy minister from passing through Britain on his way to a conference for people living with disabilities.

"What is happening in Zimbabwe is British imperialism. This is a serious matter," he said.

Nujoma, who did not once refer to his prepared speech in an official opening address of more than an hour, said the war for economic emancipation had not yet started.

"We must prepare ourselves for this, and make sure no single resource leaves the continent without benefiting Africans."

He said the struggle for economic emancipation would be more difficult than the struggle for political emancipation. Nujoma called globalisation the second or new colonialism.

"Africa has the largest deposits of uranium, diamonds, zinc and copper - why are our children still suffering from malnutrition?" he asked.

The President said one of the requirements laid down at the G8 summit in Canada earlier this year for developing countries to qualify for assistance was a good human rights record, which included recognition of the rights of gays and lesbians.

"In Namibia we will not allow these lesbians and gays. We fought the liberation struggle without that. We do not need it in our country," he said.

"We have whites who are Namibians, but they must remember they have no right to force their culture on anyone. If they are lesbian, they can do it at home, but not show it in public," he said.

Nujoma told the delegates: "I warn you as workers not to allow homosexuality. Africa will be destroyed."

He asked how many of the children at school would become gay or lesbian one day and not have children. "Namibia only has a population of 1,8 million," he said.

The President also lashed out at men who drink too much. "That is why our children are not educated. Men drink from seven to 12 every night, then they go home and beat up their wives."

He said in the war against poverty, workers were the guns. The ammunition are engineers, agriculturalists, marine biologists and veterinarians.

"Therefore children must go to school to qualify themselves so that we can produce our own food one day."

In his closing remarks Nujoma said he did not read from his speech as he was provoked by the speech of Risto Kapenda, President of Napwu.

His prepared speech, handed out to the media afterwards focused on the issue of privatisation versus the commercialisation of State-owned enterprise

Government Offered Secret Gem Deal (Kennedys and Democrat Donor Involved)

LEADING American diamond merchant Maurice Tempelsman has offered to arrange a secret payment for Government if it entrenches the right of the De Beers cartel to buy all Namibia's diamonds. . .
Tempelsman proposed raising an offshore loan of US$80 million to be made to the purchaser of Namibia's diamonds (De Beers) which it would use to pre-buy Namibia's diamonds. From this, US$50 million (N$500m) would flow to the Government.

Washington Post:

International diamond dealer Maurice Tempelsman, a generous contributor to the Democratic Party, has won unusual support from high Clinton administration officials for a business proposal that could position him as a key marketer of billions of dollars worth of Angolan diamonds, interviews and classified government cables show . . .

Cynthia McKinney (D-GA):

"Why should Antwerp and Tel Aviv be built on the limbs and backs of Freetown, Luanda and Kinshasa?"

Maurice Tempelsman, a diamond broker who served as an agent of influence for the Angolan Communist regime, secured the companionship of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who, for a number of years served as his mistress. Tempelsman was able to use this relationship, in combination with the Angolan oil payoffs to the Kennedy family to secure a completely pro-Communist Angolan policy by the new administration of Bill Clinton, which arranged for U.N. sanctions and follow-up U.S. sanctions on the anti-Communist UNITA freedom fighters led by Jonas Savimbi.

Aided by Maurice Tempelsman . . . the Kennedy family, operating through "next generation" representatives Joseph Kennedy and Michael Kennedy, was granted its own oil concession from the Marxist-Leninist government of Angola to something called the Citizens Energy Corporation. . .

Crappy leadership. Next question.

No, I'm not kidding. I'm an imperalist myself. But there is a way to do it. What we have now in Africa are outlaws providing firewater and rocket propelled grenades to the Injuns in exchange for shiny pebbles.

Bush is taking measures to stop it. Appears the U.S. Navy will set up a base and a tax-free zone on Sao Tome off the coast of Nigeria. Doubt the criminals who have been flying tons of munitions into West Africa will want to tangle with F-16s. Only makes good business sense to have a sherrif in Dodge. Everyone will profit.

In Southern Africa the political machine seems to be more interested in evening the score against all non-black Africans who have lived there for generations creating wealth, growing food, having a life and giving many citizens jobs than in the reality that these farmers have been, in many cases, a lifeline and productive sector enriching the lives of blacks and whites who live there.

Jesus. When is this nonsense going to end?

Doesn't look good, does it? Article last night (I forget where) was about SA requiring a 51% black ownership of all mines. That spooked investors. Wonder if other producers, such as Russia, would like nothing better than for mines in SA to fail.

I wonder why the West is so willing to let Southern Africa fall so miserably into ruin, chaos and destruction--South Africa is not far behind Zimbabwe and yet, our press says nothing of the plight of those who land and homes and years of work and effort have helped build the economic and functional base in African countries--albeit, okay let's call a spade a spade--yes, a great proportion of development and investment have been "perpertuated" by white people living there. SO WHAT!!!They chose to be there and do the necessary work in order to build and create thriving economies. So. What not work with these whites instead of crucifying them on the alter or political chaos!

What is next?



More deaths?

Cathy Buckle and Jan Lamprecht have been instrumental in my understanding what is happening. And others....

I believe the U.S. should give immediate and absolute asylum to white farmers and others who are being persecuted in Zimbabwe and any other African nation which follows suit and tries to take the land of white settlers, farmers, businessmen and women, priests, chaplains, missionaries, newspaper reporters, etc. etc. etc.

We need these guys here in our country--with their talents, their understanding of blacks, their obvious concern for the welfare of their fellow countrymen, their passion, their resistence to forces of political recklessness and to

their love of their countries...despite being minorities there....I think they would be great as farmers, etc. in America.

We should be so proud and so noble....

Africa should kick ASCorp and DeBeers off the continent. Mine their own stuff or open it up to real competition. Stop pretending diamonds are rare. Hold auctions and let anyone who wants to buy attend. The deal Tempelsman is doing in Namibia doesn't give them the right to even audit his books. They have no idea how much he makes. And then they get paid for the monopoly in a loan to them they have to pay off in production. Things keep going as they are and there will be one Mugabe after the next.
