A Namibian district administrator called Adolf Hitler Uunona now has to work from home while he waits for his office to be disinfected due to an outbreak of the coronavirus.
After winning a regional election in mid-2020, Adolf Hitler Uunona, 55, who was named after the infamous Nazi dictator by his dad, says he now has to work from home.
Hitler previously explained that his father “probably didn’t understand what Adolf Hitler stood for” when he named his son after the infamous failed painter, and now the Namibian politician has to work from home due to a coronavirus outbreak in his district.
The now world-famous ‘Namibian Hitler’, as he has been dubbed since he became internationally famous in the media last year, has revealed that he has had to switch to working from home, along with all of his colleagues in Oshana, which is a region in northern Namibia.
The switch took place shortly before Christmas after an outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in the region, with local citizens now reportedly only able to contact the local government via email, WhatsApp or by telephone.
The authorities are currently disinfecting “all properties” pertaining to the regional council, including Hitler’s office, after the Omicron variant of the coronavirus became widespread in the country in the last few weeks.
Hitler would typically commute to work by car, where he would meet his constituents and his colleagues from other constituencies at the Regional Council headquarters in the town of Oshakati, but this is not currently possible due to a resurgence of the pandemic in the region
It is currently unclear when Hitler will be able to return to work in person.
Namibia was a German colony called German South West Africa from 1884 to 1915.
