Our forefathers and mothers are back. They are our heroes and heroines
By Comrade Che
There were so many negative critics by some sectors on the
amount of people who went to Germany to retrieve the skulls of
our fore fathers who were brutally killed by the Germans. I am
astonished by those who claim that the delegation was too large
and what have you, in my opinion, are either insensitive Germans,
or some ignorant elements in our society who do not have
a clue as to what transpired, or simply ignore the fact that thousands
of Namibians were brutally massacred by the Von Trothas,
the woman raped by the brutal forces, and many deserted in the
desert to die, none of these critics did suggest that Germany to
pay for the travel as well accommodation of that delegation, shame
on you. And if you are not patriotic enough please pack your
bags and go to Germany
During events of such a magnitude it is essential that certain
rituals has to be performed by a sufficiently comprised delegation,
this team that accompanied are still very few. The Germans
massacred hundreds thousands of Namibians, hence for the information
of those who doesnít respect our cultures, it is high
time that you should start to get involved.
The interesting part is that the Germans took those skulls to
verify whether they were real human beings, and infect after
they have been brutally killed , the woman raped and so forth
Öindeed that was fun in their eyes because thy were not regarded
as human beings as such.
The German government didnít even have the audacity to treat
our Namibian delegation with that respect , yet they expect us to
forgive so easily, Germanís get real and compensate us please.
What is the difference between compensating the Jews and us
Namibians ? Was their loss more significant then ours?
Therefore when we as Namibians should remember that the
battle against colonial occupation stated already when this brave
man and woman sacrificed their lifeís and resisted the brutal German
forces, hence when we commemorate certain important
days such as e.g. Cassinga let us also include them.
Maybe we can change Cassinga Day to the Namibian Martyrs
Day and commemorate them jointly as this was an onslaught
against our fellow Namibians, only then will the history of
Namibia be regarded as inclusive
Yours in the struggle
