Concerned citizen meets with President
01 November 2019 | Politics
Brian Black is well known in tourism circles, an entrepreneur and chairperson of the Namibian Manufacturers Association, and began an online petition in September. “I initially wanted 5 000 signatures but it soon stood on 10 000. By last night I had more than 12 000 signatures from Namibians,” Black said.
According to him, the meeting with President Geingob went very well yesterday afternoon. “It went way beyond my expectation,” he said, adding that he was very calm and focused on the issue at hand.
“His Excellency really listened and even challenged some of my statements,” he admits. But both parties agreed on one important matter and that is that they both love Namibia. “We both are willing to die for this country,” Black said proud.
“We agreed that this issue needs more attention and we will continue this dialogue in the New Year,” he said. He thanked all the Namibians who stood behind him in signing the petition.
The reason Brian wanted to see the President is because he is convinced that corruption and maladministration can only be halted by the president.
After seeing so many Namibians standing together, Brian realised that the nation at large is tired of corruption and maladministration. “All they have been waiting for is a platform to be heard. I am forever thankful that God gave me both the courage and determination to provide this platform in the interest of a better future for all our children.”
