Namibia Introduction

is a country in southwestern Africa. It was formerly named South West Africa. Namibia covers 823,168 square kilometres.

Windhoek is the capital and largest city in Namibia.

A Short Background

South Africa occupied the German colony of Sud-West Afrika during World War I and administered it as a mandate until after World War II when it annexed the territory.

In 1966 the Marxist South-West Africa People's Organization (SWAPO) guerrilla group launched a war of independence for the area that was soon named Namibia, but it was not until 1988 that South Africa agreed to end its administration in accordance with a UN peace plan for the entire region. Independence came in 1990.
