On an issue as sensitive as land is in Namibia, our president must take great care not to shade, qualify, backtrack and obfuscate his position.  He must be consistent, clear and concise.  He ought not to change his position or presentation of his position solely based on which audience is before him.  It sends the wrong signals.
