 The German government is concerned about Chinas influence on the president of the country: do not underestimate us.


Norbert Lammert, former Speaker of the German Bundestag, rushed to Namibia to express two concerns about President Hage Geingob, Chinas growing influence on Namibia and the growing corruption in the country, according to a report in the non-media Namibian newspaper on Tuesday. . In this regard, root in the presidential palace issued a statement, please do not underestimate our wisdom.

Lammert, who served as Speaker of the German Bundestag from 2005 to 2017, is chairman of the Adenauer Foundation (KAS), a political foundation with a CDU background. He is here to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the foundations founding in Namibia and Angola.

President Gengob told Rammett that other countriesworries about Chinas influence in Namibia are annoying, which assumes that Africans are still children, they are not mature enough to deal with the worlds major powers. They will be abused and fooled like children.

The president added that Europeans may think they can deal with the Chinese because they are mature and Africans are poor and they will only be bribed.

The leader of the African country made it clear that the Chinese are investing in Namibia. He refers to the Husab uranium mine, not the small-scale trade with Namibia people.

If the Chinese come to violate our laws, we will deal with them according to law. So just like welcoming the Germans and others, we also welcome the Chinese to come to Namibia. Please do not underestimate our wisdom. Geingob said.

After raising these two concerns, Lammert continued to discuss with President Gengob the issues of the growth of Chinese population in Namibia and the number of Chinese living in Namibia is four times that of German population.

Rammetts questions raised questions from President Gengob. Why did these questions attract German attention?

We allow the Germans to enjoy the VIP treatment in Namibia without a visa. Our people, including those holding diplomatic passports, are in distress in Germany. Chinese do not treat us like that. We know how to manage our own country, so do not feel sorry for us. The president said.

In addition, President Gengob told Rammett that Germany should deal with the Holocaust more than fight over Chinas influence in Namibia. So far, the Chinese have not committed the crime of massacre here. We will not allow them to do so because we are independent.

According to Xinhua News Agency, Germany colonized Namibia from 1884 to 1915, during which the German authorities in Namibia (then known as Germanys Southwest Africa) massacred the Herero and Nama peoples in order to suppress the local anti-colonial uprising. Since then, about 300 Aboriginal bones have been brought back to Germany for the so-called research. In recent years, Germany has held a series of negotiations with Namibia on how to take responsibility for the atrocities committed during the colonial period. The return of remains is one of the most important demands of the descendants of Namibian victims. Germany sent some of its indigenous bones back to Namibia in 2011 and 2014. On 29 August 2018, the German Federal Government and the Namibian delegation held a handover ceremony in Berlin to hand over the remains of Namibians killed during the German colonial period to the visiting Namibian delegation.
