Approximately ten years before Namibia gained independence in 1991 the decision to implement English as the sole official language in the country had already been determined by SWAPO in 1981 (Pütz, 1995, p. 155). Was the outline as English as only official language the right solution, or “just another natural step spread for the global language of English”? Where the language planners “forced” to take that decision or could it be done I another way? Secondly and as some kind of conclusion I will look, which consequences and risks does the solution have in the Namibian society as well as in the future?

The first university essay I wrote!
