A Namibian Politician who goes by the name Adolf Hitler has won local election in Namibia.

Adolf Hitler Uunona was elected last week as councillor for the Ompundja constituency.

The man who claims his father gave him that name says he doesn’t share the ideologies of the Nazi German Adolf Hilter and that it was just a name given to him by His father.

Between 1884 and 1915, Namibia was part of German territory called German South West Africa.

After World War One, Namibia came under South African control and gained independence in 1990. But it still has many German-named towns and a small German-speaking community.
