I would like to thank all the people who love Namibia and see a wonderful future for this country. Many of the discussions and constructive criticism ensure this will continue to be a project that will improve through time.


This book would not have been possible without the guidance, advice and encouragement from Dr. Detlef Frormann. Dr. Frormann is the owner of Creditreform Düsseldorf Frormann KG, a business information company in Germany. Dr. Frormann is also the owner of the Guestfarm Okomitundu in the Karibib District close to Otjimbingwe, the first colonial capital of Namibia.


Detlef and I met in 1999 and have been working on the development of a central register system for Namibia and the SADC region. This has been a time consuming effort that included a more than a years training in Germany and continued efforts to convince the Namibian government departments and institutions about the benefits of a citizens and business central register.


The first personal question I remember Detlef asking me was, "Since when have you wanted to be President of Namibia?"


Rather than answer the question of when, this book answers the question of the Future Namibia I would like to be the President of.


I also wish to thank Andimba Toivo ya Toivo for taking the time to read the first draft of the book and writing the foreword. As the founder of the South West Africa People`s Organisation (SWAPO), he has inspired many Namibians to fight for the political freedom of this  country. His words re-inforced my belief that such a book is necessary in our country at this time as we continue the fight for economic and social freedom of our people.


Lastly, I thank the people of Namibia. You are the "Future Namibia".
