Breadcrumb

Special Rapporteurs from the United Nations (UN) have confirmed that the participation rights of the Ovaherero and Nama people have been violated by the German and Namibian governments in terms of international law. The rapporteurs also urge the German government to grant reparations.

The Nama Traditional Leaders Association (NTLA) and the Ovaherero Traditional Authority (OTA), through their legal representation, had earlier reached out to the international community, questioning the lawfulness of the two governments.
