Namibia Background Information

Cave paintings suggest that hunter gatherers may have lived in the area 25,000 years ago.

Notable early inhabitants of Namibia include the San, the Khoikhoi, the Ovambo and the Herero.

Not much European contact was made with the natives between Portuguese navigator Bartolomeu Dias' landing, in 1488, and the German creation of   South-West Africa in 1884.

After the First World War, South Africa was granted a League of Nations mandate over the former German territory, but outstayed their welcome.

During the period of South African rule, the apartheid system of South Africa was applied to Namibia, and black nationalist parties were effectively banned.

In June 1971 the International Court of Justice finally ruled that the South African presence in Namibia was illegal. South Africa ignored the ruling and continued to profit from the mineral deposits until December 1988.

Namibia gained independence on March 21, 1990, but South Africa remained in Walvis Bay, until February 1994.
