Namibia - Background Information

South Africa occupied the German colony of South-West Africa during World War I and administered it as a mandate until after World War II, when it annexed the territory.

In 1966 the Marxist South-West Africa People's Organization (SWAPO) guerrilla group launched a war of independence for the area that was soon named Namibia, but it was not until 1988 that South Africa agreed to end its administration in accordance with a UN peace plan for the entire region.

Namibia was governed by SWAPO after the country won independence in 1990.

Hifikepunye Pohamba was elected president, in November 2004, in a landslide victory; replacing Sam Nujoma, who led the country during its first 14 years of self rule.


Southern Africa - bordering the South Atlantic Ocean; between Angola and South Africa.

Caprivi; Erongo; Hardap; Karas; Khomas; Kunene; Ohangwena; Okavango; Omaheke; Omusati; Oshana; Oshikoto; Otjozondjupa.
