Dr. Wolff Geisler, an expert on a mission in South Africa for a second job

Dr. Wolff Geisler, Cologne-Germany

Everything is quite modest in the house of Dr. med. Wolff Geisler. At 45, a general practitioner usually has a slightly different ambiance than these two rooms in Bonn’s oldest shared flat, located in a small family home with a large garden.

A modest bed; decrepit armchairs; brightly colored cabinets and shelves, bulging with files, books, magazines. They symbolize the second job of Doctor Geisler: the expert for the economic and military relations between the Federal Republic of Germany and South Africa.

From international military magazines to brochures of black African resistance movements, from confidential papers from the boardrooms of German companies to official government documents, you’ll find everything here.

Only private frills one looks in vain. Wolff Geisler did not even bring it to a decent stereo in the 15 years that he now lives here. Since the beginning of the year, he has been building his own practice in Cologne-Wahn. Before that, he has two days a week at a country doctor nearby Bonn helped out to secure his subsistence level.

For the rest of his time, he devoted only one major topic: southern Africa. He had to look for his own practice because the country doctor had announced the comfortable help contract last year. His goal: to bring the practice to fruition as fast as possible, to hire an assistant soon – so that time is left for the political.

He began in 1971, as a young medical assistant and, incidentally, managing director of the “German Committee for Angola, Guinea Bissau, and Mozambique.” He argued for the independence of these African territories from the Portuguese colonial ruler.

At shareholder meetings, he railed against the participation of German companies in the construction of the Cabora Bassa dam, with the Portugal of his rule in Africa: “Assassination of Murder”.

“Moscow spy,” “asshole,” “out,” moisten him at an AEG general meeting that fellow shareholders who had bought their securities to see a whopping return, and not, as Geisler and some student associates, to politics to operate.

Cabora-Bassa finished the story: after the Portuguese “Carnation Revolution” independence came immediately for the African “provinces”, and the black moçambique, mindful of decades of West German assistance to the colonialists in Lisbon, forbids any participation by representatives of the socialist countries. Liberal Federal Government at the Freedom Celebrations.

Only one West German was invited and was allowed to take a seat in the VIP gallery: Wolff Geisler, hugely embraced by the new President Samora Machel. When several hundred black children passed by during the parade, he cried “snot and water.” For now, he knew: “Something is finally being done against infant mortality and child mortality.”

He had finally studied medicine “to find out under what political and social conditions people can live healthily”. His political eye-opening experience came in the apo period. Colleagues from the SDS told him that the federal government was supplying jet bombers to the Portuguese Military. He did not want to believe that.

“You have to prove that to me first.” That was not difficult, and then Wolff Geisler began to prove to others how much, sometimes openly, sometimes secretly, politicians and entrepreneurs from the Federal Republic support the white gentlemen in the Cape – and even the apartheid policy and the cheap black Workers benefit.
