For a number of years now we have been observing that North Koreans have been used to build Namibian National symbols such as the grandiose State House, a new Independence Museum and the Heroes acre in our capital city, Windhoek .
Given the fact that Namibia is a free and democratic country, it is ironic that we should allow an oppressive, sinister regime such as North Korea, to build our national symbols of freedom.
We have just heard that North Korea has jailed and possibly executed 33 Christians.
The Washington Times (March 6th, 2014) citing the South Korean Daily Mail carried the following report :
“North Korea tyrant Kim Jong-un has reportedly ordered that 33 Christians believed to be working alongside South Korean Baptist missionary Kim Jung-wook be put to death.

The South Korean missionary — who was arrested last year — and his accomplices have reportedly started 500 or so underground churches, Breitbart reported.
South Korean press cited by The Daily Mail reported that Mr. Kim has charged that the 33 are attempting to overthrow the government — the same accusation that led to the execution of the North Korean leader’s uncle, Jang Song-thaek, and all Mr. Jang’s relatives.
The missionary aides will be put to death in a cell of the State Security Department, The Daily Mail reported.
Their announced executions come just a day after reports surfaced that North Korea’s Number Two, Choe Ryong Hae, hasn’t been seen at several recent public events he normally would have attended — fueling talk that perhaps he’s the latest to be purged from Mr. Kim’s government.”

Surely, this is an outrage! Namibia has a large professing Christian majority and we should not be silent on this matter. We know of course that God will, in His time, severely judge North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un for the murder of Christ’s people, but we also want to remind our government that alliances with such countries will not leave us unscathed from the wrath of God.
