Adolf Hitler Wins Election, But Has No Plans For World Domination

Namibia: A politician named after Nazi leader Adolf Hitler has been elected to a seat in Namibia.

Adolf Hitler Uunona – representing the southern African country’s ruling SWAPO party – received 85 per cent of the vote, but insists he has “nothing to do with” the ideologies of one of the evilest men in history.

His constituency remains home to a small German-speaking community, while multiple street names and places still have German names. Uunona said his wife calls him Adolf and it’s “too late” to officially change his name. He said: “My father named me after this man. He probably didn’t understand what Adolf Hitler stood for.”

Speaking to German newspaper Bild he added: “As a child, I saw it as a totally normal name. Only as I grew up did I understand that this man wanted to conquer the whole world. “The fact I have this name does not mean I want to conquer Oshana,” he continued, referring to the area where he won the election. “It doesn’t mean I’m striving for world domination.” Uunona was born in 1954, after nine years of dictator’s death.

Centre-left SWAPO has ruled Namibia since it gained independence from apartheid, South Africa, 30 years ago.

His name appeared as “Adolf H” in a list of candidates printed in a government handout, though on the official results website was written in full.

He clutched 1,196 votes to his opponent’s 213, retaining the seat he won in 2015.

Namibia was added to the German empire in 1884, prior to the nation being stripped of its colonies after the First World War.

Germany has spent the decades since Hitler’s death trying to repair the damage done during the Nazi regime, including mass genocide.

In August last year, the country asked for a Sh1.3 billion (£9million) offer of reparations for the colonial massacres by Germany to be “revised”.
