"Forget the past. Focus on the future," and, "I too am an African" have become the slogans of many whites living on the African continent, while keeping all rights and the economy.

Twenty-two years since Namibia's independence, one needs to add to those unfounded, opportunistic utterings the United Nations programme for de-colonised, independent and sovereign southern African countries, the 'willing seller, and willing buyer' strategy.

Yet, in that process, the indigenous black African remains poor, without access to land and the economy and one has a mixture for a revolution. Throughout history it is proven that privileged rich and disadvantaged poor cannot live side by side. It gets worse, when all this is based on a history of bloody racial colonial-apartheid.

And, there is more in the form of the same old threats of disinvestment, particularly when indigenous Africans in their own land, on their own continent, dare to remind the owners of their ancestral land, which holds mineral wealth, mines and economy, that structured poverty through make-believe fronting by identified 'Black Economic Empowerment' schemes are designed to fail.

A new and thin black African middle class was put in place to keep the majority of their kith and kin as mere spectators on the sides of the economic playing field.

As Head of State and President of the ruling party, SWAPO, President Hifikepunye Pohamba wisely expressed his concern about a possible revolution for land. It is to be expected that the owners of the economy and their neo-liberal corporate mainstream media would immediately retaliate by issuing that tired declaration of an economic war. "Possible interested investors will be frightened off," the old yawn is immediately resorted to.

SWAPO Party's leadership is not only the democratically elected ruling party of Namibia. Among its committed duties is to lead its voter base, the poor absolute majority of the country, out of abject poverty and into economic participation with all additives that come with it. At the same time, SWAPO Party leadership has to wisely balance the position of a sovereign Namibia in SADC, the AU, the UN and the rest of the global village on the one hand and the dire needs of its electorate on the other. This is also called 'national security'.
