Walvis Bay 30 years re-intergrated

Breadcrumb

Namibia celebrated 30 years since the full and formal re-integration of Walvis Bay and its 12 offshore islands.

30 years ago, on March 1, 1994, the Walvis Bay and Off-Shore Islands Act 1 of 1994 came into force, making Walvis Bay and the off-shore islands, in terms of Article 1 of the Namibian Constitution, part of the national territory of Namibia.

Following the independence of Namibia and notwithstanding Article 1 of the Namibian Constitution, Walvis Bay and the off-shore islands continued to be controlled by South Africa, under the laws of South Africa.
