A Chinese retailer was left very unhappy|
last Saturday morning, when her hair was
cut as punishment by a customer. The unhappy customer, Altus Ndjoze
(26) wanted a refund for a watch that he
bought the previous day from one of the
shops in China Town in Katutura, but the
Chinese woman refused to refund or replace
the broken watch.
"I paid N$200 for that watch. It was working
perfectly well yesterday, but when I
woke up this morning it was dead," an angry
He added, "That Chinese woman know
very well that I brought the watch just yesterday
from her shop, but now she is pretending
that she does not remember me.
Yesterday she was very polite and friendly
when she took my money and now she is
very rude and acting all strange. I got so
mad at her. The only thing that I could see
clearly was her long two pony tails and the
pair of scissors lying on the table in front
of me. I picked up the scissors, grab her by
the left pony tail and ask her one more time
to give me my money back, but she still
refused. I than cut the pony tail off until I
could feel her loose hair in my hand. When
she started shouting at me and calling me
names in her language, that is when I realized
what I have done," Ndjoze boasted.
He, however, admitted that cutting the
Chinese retailer’s hair was wrong as his
behavior did not change the situation. He
promises to improve his behavior in the
future and not to go around cutting other
"How long will this go on? These Chinese
people are taking us all for a ride. They
are fooling us into buying their low priced
products which does not last for very long. I
have lost N$200 and now I still have to buy
another watch. I have learned my lesson.
I will never buy anything from any China
Shop ever again," Ndjoze said.
Most of the Chinese manufactured products
in Namibia are of very poor quality.
However, one question remains, why they
produce poor quality products? Could this
perhaps also apply to the popular say; "you
get what you pay for". The Chinese people
are surely not stupid.
