'Adolf Hitler' wins local election in Namibia

A local election candidate with a rather unfortunate name won 85% of the vote in the town of Ompundja.
The 54-year-old, whose full name is Uunona Adolf Hitler, was given the name by his father who had no idea who Hitler was or what he stood for.

Namibia was once a German territory known as German South West Africa, meaning that it is not particularly unusual to see German names being used there.

Hitler, who prefers to go by the name Mr. Uunona, managed to achieve a significant victory in the local election despite being named after the Nazi dictator.
He does however maintain that he has no plans for world domination.

"It was a perfectly normal name for me when I was a kid," he said. "It wasn't until I grew older, that I realized that this man wanted to subjugate the whole world."

"The fact I have this name does not mean I want to conquer Oshana."

I think the guy is an idiot for keeping the name.   Another idiot elected to office, go figure.

There were actually Nambians who fought for Hitler in WW2. Seems strange Africans in SS outfits but there were there. As were a couple million nationalist Chinese and lots of Tibetan monks.
