THE DESTRUCTION OF TIMBER AND OTHER NATURAL WEALTH FROM CAPRIVI STRIP TO CHINA AND ELSWHERE IS VANDALIZING THE NATURAL HERITAGE OF CAPRIVI

Timber is one of the major resources that Caprivi which colonized by Namibia is rich with, there are few Countries that produces timber of their own around the world. Namibia deliberately and haphazardly is aiming to exploit and tear down the God given natural resources of the Caprivi Strip.

In any case it is not allowed to harvest the natural resources of a particular place and transport such to another Country for own benefit without considering the Local people. I have no doubt that these are China mafias who are dealing with the corrupted so called elite of the Swapo regime.

A responsible Government must not allow what is happening with Timber cutting from Caprivi to China. This is regardless either the tender for such a project was given to a local person or maybe such cutting could be for a demarcated area for another purpose or whatever; the question remains, what benefit will come to the inhabitants of the Caprivi?

I have several times reminded the people of the colonized Caprivi that the Swapo governmentís plan is only to plunder and exploit the Caprivi resources without mercy.

It could be true that there are few individuals who were promised peanuts in such a massive cutting of trees, organized by corrupted individuals who are eying to enrich themselves in this project, how do we define that if it is not corruption at its best? I therefore would like to appeal to all the Caprivians to stay alert with their eyes and ears open in order to reject all the subterfuge aimed to exploit both natural and human resources of the Caprivi Strip.

Caprivians are reminded that during the apartheid regime, the boers established a Saw- Mill in Katima Mulilo for the processing of Timber, such timber was used to provide for school chairs and tables among others, such a factory is now among some old tales to our children, as such no longer exists. Swapo government when came in, poverty started smelling everywhere in the Caprivi, unemployment is rife, education opportunities and future of the young Children is bleak.

It is an open secret that disregarding the internationally prohibition of stolen diamond, Swapo Government continues to steal our precious diamond from Western Caprivi in the pretext of safe guarding the place while they are busy mining the diamond at night with their foreign diamond dealers.

Few past years they engaged in transporting animals from Caprivi to Namibia and giving some to their friends, Mr. Sam Nujoma made Caprivi a shooting spree recreational, Buffaloes Zebras Springbok and many other types of animals were shot indiscriminately with automatic rifle, in the event other animals died while others were injured and left for the maggots.

Currently there is an ongoing massive harvesting of the devil- claws which I believe is being sold in China, there is no regulations for such activities, as a result such natural resources becomes extinct. If Caprivi was seen as the land of the devil-claws, why canít those buyers invest in the Caprivi Strip; to help the Caprivian people with employment and affordable medication which comes from their own product?

I call upon all the Caprivians to be united and safe keep of the Caprivi environment and its natural resources, people should refrain from selling land and wanton destruction of the natural resources. Natural resources must be used sustainably for the future generation.

I therefore call upon the Namibian Government to stop plundering and exploiting the Caprivi Natural resources, Caprivi is on the verge to acquire her independence; Swapo government should stop sabotaging the Caprivi natural resources. Caprivians shall explore their own resources for their own benefit and for the benefit of their Children.

The world should not watch and do nothing with the destruction happening in the Caprivi, we therefore call for the international Community, organizations and individuals to call for an end to the destruction and illegal occupation of the Caprivi Strip.

Caprivians should stand united for their course, to love each other and love their beautiful Country and preserve its natural resources.

Forward Ever Backward Never
