THE Prosecutor General of Namibia’s recent announcement, that no person could be held accountable after 20 years of investigation into the looting of more than N$660 million from the Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF) should under no circumstance be left unchallenged.
In this regard Brian Black, a Namibian entrepreneur and the current Chairperson of the Namibian Manufacturers Association launched a campaign in which he advocates for accountability and the arrest of the guilty parties in the GIPF missing millions saga before the Presidential and National Assembly Elections takes place in November this year.
When he launched his campaign he called on all Namibians irrespective of political persuasions to rise with him against the two evils of corruption and maladministration.
Black says in the preamble to the campaign that he believes that the best time for Namibians to stand up against corruption and maladministration was yesterday and that the second best time is now.
All Namibians can show their support for the campaign by signing a petition online. Black intends to hand the petition over to President Hage Geingob early in October.
“Our president owes it to the nation to demonstrate his commitment to the noble fight against corruption by instructing all our law enforcement agents to ensure at least one arrest before this year’s election,” Black said.
He requested his fellow countrymen to take action by signing the petition online by following the link: http://chng.it/ZMnSjLWH
“The future of the country will not be destroyed by those doing evil, but by our silence. The choice on how history will one day judge us is solely in our hands,” Black stated.
Black requested that the people signing the petition should also share the link on their social media pages to ensure that it spreads far and wide and to garner as many signatures as possible.
