Efforts aimed at recognising Hompa Kandjimi-Hauwanga


Historian and University of Namibia (UNAM) researcher Shampapi Shiremo has drawn attention to the ongoing efforts aimed at recognising the late Hompa Kandjimi-Hauwanga and repatriating his remains from Germany.

This he stated in an exclusive interview with Inside The Chambers.

Delving into Kandjimi-Hauwanga's role in the early 20th century, Shiremo is currently writing a book on the late Hompa Kandjimi-Hauwanga.
