  • Namibia in speculation: On future settings, technological bodies and
           intergalactic space travel in the Binti trilogy and the Namibia comic
           series

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Renzo Baas
      Pages: 7 - 31
      Abstract: Within less than a decade, Namibia became the futuristic setting for two literary series in the mid-2000s. The Binti trilogy, written by Nnedi Okorafor, was released between 2015 and 2018, just after the Namibia (2010-2016) comic book series, produced by Léo, Bertrand Marchal and Daniel Rodolphe, was published. Both series feature a heroine, space travel, attempts to prevent a cosmic war, and linked to this, the destruction of Earth. Both series also give Namibia a central role in the unfolding of these events – although focussing on different aspects and using differing methods to achieve this. This article explores the (speculative) bodies presented in both novels, their use of technology, the protagonist’s relationships to alien characters, and the role Namibia as a specific geopolitical space plays in these stories. The aim is to understand some of the reasoning behind choosing a former colony as the place of space travel, alien invasions, and superior technology. This in turn may help in offering strategies that allow Namibians to negotiate the country’s violent and traumatic past.

  • Eviction of families from Nkarapamwe black township houses in Rundu,
           north-east Namibia, 1970

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kletus Likuwa, Shampapi Shiremo
      Pages: 33 - 50
      Abstract: Abstract
      Through the perusal of archival police testimonies, blended with oral and written sources, this paper centres around the 1970 eviction of 400 families of Nkarapamwe Black township in Rundu. While detailing factors behind eviction, it asserts that a colonial official, who was concerned with accommodation shortages, used his office powers inconsiderately to evict unemployed families with no concern to their plights. A discussion on eviction process explains the colonial officials’ strategies of cancelling previous double housing allocations. The paper further explains Nkarapamwe residents’ liaison with Church and the Police and their concerns of the exclusion of traditional authorities in decisions relating to Africans’ urban residency rights, which was a strategy to buy support against eviction. Lastly, we discuss the social, political and economic impacts of eviction. Nkarapamwe residents’ held view that the eventual dismissal and removal from the Kavango of the responsible colonial official emanated from their collective efforts, presents a tale of morality and a psychological reward to victims of evictions. Arguably, in the face of eminent colonial evictions, it seems plausible that evicted residents’ collective efforts, although unable to stop evictions, still presented psychological rewards for evicted families to come to terms with effects of evictions.

  • Re-examining UNTAG’s humanitarian role in Namibia’s transition: Life
           stories of former SWAPO exiles during and after repatriation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tichaona T. Mazarire
      Pages: 51 - 76
      Abstract: The personal stories of former SWAPO exiles reveal how UNTAG’s limited role in Namibia’s transition had lasting effects that shaped the reintegration processes for former SWAPO exiles in the post-colony. The purpose of this paper is to map the life histories of former SWAPO exiles in order to understand their lived experiences of repatriation and its aftermath. These life histories were obtained through semi-structured interviews that mapped their individual trajectories from 1989 through 2018. The life histories mapped in this paper invite the reader to consider the prospect that the benefits of UNTAG’s humanitarian support to returning SWAPO exiles have been exaggerated.

  • Paper, pixels, or plane tickets' Multi-archival perspectives on the
           decolonisation of Namibia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tycho van der Hoog , Bernard C. Moore
      Pages: 77 - 106
      Abstract: Namibia was one of the final African states to gain independence, a political transformation which was the outcome of a decades-long liberation struggle. The global dimension of the struggle has been duly recognised by generations of historians. As a result, archival materials related to this era - as well as the colonial ones preceding it – are to be found all over the world. Through a discussion of relevant archival collections pertaining to Namibian history - though located outside the boundaries of the Republic of Namibia – this article considers the global archival paper trail of Namibian colonisation and decolonisation. We shed light on the origins of various collections located in South Africa, Europe, North America, and beyond in order to reveal the ways in which the utilisation of such global archivalia can shape our understanding of Namibian decolonisation. This applies to government archives, private collections, institutional solidarity collections, as well as those of international organisations. We then delve into some of the promises and pitfalls of the digitisation of archival records, noting issues of ethics and methodology. Ultimately, we hold that historians must balance both internal and external Namibiana archivalia in crafting our arguments about the past, and we must balance both the merits and demerits of the digital turn in historical research.

  • Legislative omission or everyday creation: Assessing statelessness in
           Namibia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Johannes Shekeni, Lesley Blaauw
      Pages: 109 - 127
      Abstract: Despite a plethora of confirmed cases of statelessness in Namibian, the country has no procedure for or policy on determining whether an individual is stateless or not. Moreover, the country’s national statistics do not include stateless people despite the fact that the media and official reports often draw attention to cases which involve individuals who lack legal documentation or are of undetermined citizenship, some of whom would be regarded as stateless. This study explores the factors that that give rise to and sustain statelessness in Namibia. Drawing upon qualitative data, the study highlights shortcomings in the legal framework covering citizenship and in its administration. It advances the argument that legislatively the country has overcome much of its colonial legacy, which tied citizenship to ethnic and racial origin. The paper contends that the legal obstacles to child citizenship, a relic of colonial times, make it difficult to solve the problem of statelessness and undocumentedness in Namibia.

  • Demanding reparations for colonial genocide using historical documents: Do
           the Herero of Namibia have legal evidence to support their demand for
           German reparations'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Seebal Aboudounya
      Pages: 145 - 163
      Abstract: To receive reparations from Germany for the first genocide of the 20th century, the Herero of Namibia have been facing a legal challenge; they must demonstrate that the Herero genocide was illegal under international law during the colonial period. Through the analysis of historical treaties and documents, this article reveals that the Herero can make use of legal evidence to support their demands. The article demonstrates that Germany violated contemporaneous international law, i.e. the international law valid at the time. This revelation has significant implications for Namibia as well as for other victims of colonial genocides. The article then comments on the political context and suggests possible routes for the Herero to secure reparations for the tragedy their ancestors experienced.
