So in that way we..... our government, will be set up definitely in the best interest of the Namibian people, unlike the present political administration of South Africa, whereby the Africans are denied fundamental human rights. As well as that, the minority white settlers exclusively enjoy the benefit of the wealth of the country while the Africans are suffering from (INDISTINCT) disease and (INDISTINCT.)."
