Politician named Adolf Hitler wins local election in Namibia

Adolf Hitler has won a local election — in Namibia.

Adolf Hitler Uunona, who goes by Adolf Uunona, insists that unlike his namesake, he has no plans to conquer the world after his election win.

“My father named me after this man. He probably didn’t understand what Adolf Hitler stood for,” he tells German tabloid Bild.

He adds: “It was a very normal name for me as a child. It was not until I was growing up that I realized that this man wanted to subjugate the whole world. I have nothing to do with any of these things.”
