They’re not Leprosy Patients- Namah

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is a chronic infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae. The disease mainly affects the skin, the peripheral nerves, mucosal surfaces of the upper respiratory tract and the eyes. The disease has been around since Biblical times and those with the disease were separated from the people as they were deemed unclean.

Lepers were considered unclean, and they were forced to separate themselves from the public. The mere touch of a leper brought uncleanness, and breathing the same air of a leper was believed to be dangerous. When someone was pronounced “leprous” they were looked upon as dead and cast out of society to dwell in a special place or colony in the wilderness, living in caves or tents. In ancient Israel lepers were commanded to wear certain clothes, keep themselves a certain distance from people, wear special bells, and they had to cry “unclean unclean” if someone was too close (Lev 13:45). The rabbis viewed leprosy as a chastisement from God because of moral issues. (Wiki)

What Namah was saying is clear, You’re not leprosy patients and therefore we cannot turn you away. You’re welcome to join the club, you don’t have to separate yourselves from us (Opposition) by isolating yourselves in the middle bench.
Namah is a Seventh Day Adventist and knows his Bible, that is why he made the reference. But as a Christian, Namah fails to recognize that spiritually, O’Neill has leprosy

Namah and O’Neill used to be friends turned enemies, as Namah himself claimed “I am the king maker” referring to making O’Neill PM in 2011. In the past years, they didn’t see eye to eye when O’Neill was in power. Now with O’Neill out of power, Namah once again seeks to make enemies with Marape attacking Marape with all he got stating that Prime Minister Marape is incapable of running the country.

As they say “In politics, there are no permanent friends, no permanent enemies, but permanent interests.”

Namah is now taking the “Enemy of my enemy is my friend” approach towards O’Neill and PNC who have fallen out of Marape’s favor. Namah is out here extending his hand to O’Neill. We now have a common enemy (Marape), come join me O’Neill.
You no nogut, Marape les lo you but mi barata blo you lo Vanimo-Green mi stap!
