Politician named Adolf Hitler wins victory in Namibia but insists “I’m not fighting for world domination”


A politician called Adolf Hitler won a landslide in the Namibian elections – but promised he was not “fighting for world domination.”

The ill-named councilor won 85% of the vote in claiming a seat in the former German colony in southern Africa.

Mr. Hitler assured that he had “nothing to do with” the Nazi ideology despite sharing a name with the evil Fuhrer, who died in 1945.

Full name Adolf Hitler Uunona, he won the seat on the party ticket for the ruling South West African People’s Organization (Swapo).

The party has been in power since its independence from apartheid South Africa in 1990.

Namibia still has many streets, places and people sharing German names and being part of the German colony in southwestern Africa.

“My father named me after this man. He probably didn’t understand what Adolf Hitler stood for, ”Mr. Hitler told Bild.

“As a child, I saw it as a perfectly normal name.

“It wasn’t until my teenage years that I realized that this man wanted to conquer the whole world. ”

Mr. Hitler said his wife called him Adolf and his name was normally Adolf Uunona.

He lamented that it is now “too late” to change his name as it appears on all of his official documents.

He won 1,196 votes in the election out of 213 for his opponent, giving him a seat on the Oshana Regional Council.

Mr. Hitler could not be more different from his historical namesake, entering politics by joining anti-apartheid fighters with Swapo.

“Just because I have that name doesn’t mean I want to subjugate Oshana now,” he assured.

Namibia still has German speaking communities due to its colonial past and each year is visited by around 120,000 Germans.

Berlin still claims to have a “special responsibility” to the country because of the “shared colonial past” of the two nations.

German soldiers massacred some 65,000 Hereo and 10,000 members of the Nama tribes to quell a revolt between 1904 and 1908.

Control of the region by the Kaisers was fought by the fallen empire at the end of World War I.

The rise to power of Adolf Hitler

ADOLF Hitler was one of the most evil men to ever live and was responsible for the murder of millions of people

He was born in Austria in 1889 and originally envisioned a career as a priest or artist before being drafted into the German army in 1914.

His experiences in World War I led him to enter politics as Germany suffered a humiliating defeat in 1918.

Hitler became a leading member of the National Socialist Party of German Workers – or the Nazis – in 1920.

Capitalizing on growing misfortune and hardship in Germany, Hitler’s party gained popularity and even staged a failed coup in 1923.

He was imprisoned and after his release unveiled his true ideology in his book Mein Kampf.

The Nazis became one of the largest parties in Germany, with Hitler being appointed Chancellor in 1933.

He passed a litany of new laws that imposed censorship and ended civil liberties, setting himself up as a dictator.

Germany invaded Poland in 1939 to rule over the territory it had lost in World War I – triggering World War II and the fall of the Nazis.

Pressure has increased in recent years for the German to offer Namibia some kind of redress.

Unlike his modern namesake, Hitler was a brutal tyrant whose steamroller attempts over huge swathes of Europe sparked World War II.

After taking power with the Nazi Party in 1933, the evil regime committed large-scale genocide by imposing its distorted racist views.

The Third Reich systematically murdered six million Jews – roughly two-thirds of the entire European Jewish population – during the Holocaust.

Britain, America, Russia and their allies defeated the Nazis in 1945 after liberating much of Europe from Hitler’s iron grip.

Hitler committed suicide by shooting himself while curling up in his Fuhrerbunker as the enormous Red Army of the Soviet Union stormed towards Berlin.

His body was pulled from his asshole by Russian soldiers before being burned in the gardens of the Reich Chancellery.

It comes after a cat lover was taken aback after spotting Hitler’s face staring into his kitten’s ear.
