The Internal Struggle

Namibia 1987/88

Photo album of photos from the 1987/8 student unrest in Namibia. Comments collected during the two weeks of 21 March - 1 April 2011 via Facebook. All photographs courtesy of John Liebenberg.

During the 1980’s the battle for the hearts of the Namibian people was being fought. The PLAN combatants were waging war with their Angolan, Cuban and Russian allies, but this was taking place outside the borders of the country. Inside the country, the battle was in the form of protest and civil disobedience. The internal struggle included famous Namibians such as Hendrik Witbooi, Danny Tjongarero, Niko Bessinger, Anton Lubowski, John Pandeni and Ben Ulenga. They were harassed, beaten and arrested continuously by the South African regime. However, the regime felt it was winning. They had created ethnic authorities and many of these leaders had convinced the people of the need for managed democracy versus the communist take-over by SWAPO. All that changed when the students started participating in the struggle. In 1987 the police were unable to control and prevent the students from running through Katutura and Khomasdal, with some of the marchers reaching the central business district. By mid 1988, the South African regime and their puppet government was losing control. Over 75 000 school students were boycotting schools throughout the country in protest at the South African army and police repressions. The boycotts began at the Ponhofi Secondary School in Ovamboland. Laws such as the Protection of Fundamental Rights Act (No. 16 of 88) were being used to prevent the gathering of any kind. This specific law was contested by the Namibian National Students Organisation and others and was found to be unconstitutional. This legal battle is still used around the world when discussing human rights as it "creates criminal offences for activities which in democratic societies have been perfectly acceptable and legal."i In legal literature, “The period of 1985 to Independence … an historical prelude because it arguably sets the stage for the constitutional development that followed Independence.”ii Unfortunately, this internal struggle for Independence has largely been neglected. This publication is a first step in bringing this story into the common memory of all Namibians.

This is one of the most memorable days of my life. Getting released from jail during the student uprisings of 1988 (**Photo courtesy John Liebenberg**) Name List: 1. Willem Hanse 2. Martin Nangoro 3.

Victor Hamutenya Good History Indeed

March 23, 2011 at 11:38
Julian De Wette Wonderful photograph. The subjects look as though they are at the beginning of a very long journey. Where did everyone end up, I wonder.

March 23, 2011 at 11:49
Milton Louw Julian, I am writing that story as we speak. Just to pique your curiosity- preacher, teachers, business owners, deputy auditor-general, deputy minister trade, member of parliament, .....

March 23, 2011 at 11:55
Julian De Wette And then, of course, there was John. Look forward to the story. Whatever the circumstances then, the faces are filled with promise.

March 23, 2011 at 11:59
Kaleni Hiyalwa @ Milton: Congratulations! Y've made history. We want to know more. Wrte about it or do something about it. At least I put some things in black and white. I can lend u a copy of a novel: "Meekulu's Children" by Kaleni Hiyalwa: A book about the struggle for Uhuru - Namibia. You will live to love it. Written as fiction in a soft language of reconciliation but dramatic events that epitomise our struggle for independence remain vivid. But you have to come back home first before I can lend it to you...lol.

March 23, 2011 at 16:21

Milton Louw @kaleni - I am looking forward to that book. You should also try get a copy of Prof Harlech Jones's book - A Small Space -http://www.onlineoriginals.com/showitem.asp?itemID=106

March 23, 2011 at 16:24
Kaleni Hiyalwa @John, Where can I buy your book? We know u as the best liberation struggle photographer. Through thick and thin, you were there - so fearless and energetic.

March 23, 2011 at 16:46
Kaleni Hiyalwa @ Milton: Thanks!

March 23, 2011 at 16:59
Johan van Wyk Milton, I am not certain about Tokko and Hieronymous Goraseb, Willem Hanse should know better. At the back look like Koola (real name forgotten, Archie Beukes could be of help, they were SU ((Scriture Union)) members.

March 23, 2011 at 17:18
Milton Louw Koola = Wouter Louw?

March 23, 2011 at 17:37
Johan van Wyk yeap!

March 23, 2011 at 17:39
Karl Aribeb Hi doris I am not in it but I see Sem !Hoakhoab, the guy with my tag is Nathaniel Ncobo //Areseb, Toko Lukas, Gomes Mannetti and the guy on the extreme left with the Academy jacket looks like Alfeus (OtjiHerero guy who's surname I never knew). Eish and those Academy blazers, hairstyles LOL. And people say those of us in the country did not contribute.

March 23, 2011 at 17:51
Karl Aribeb Yes Erica Bothma is also there

March 23, 2011 at 17:51
Johan van Wyk Where is Toko these days @Karl

March 23, 2011 at 17:53
Karl Aribeb No clue man. Haven't seen him ages.

March 23, 2011 at 17:56
Milton Louw Thanks Karl- bumped into Alfeus -cannot remember his surname either. See Sem quite often

March 23, 2011 at 17:58
Karl Aribeb I think it is Theo Karipi who is carry a back in the front row 3rd from right

March 23, 2011 at 18:48
John Arthur Liebenberg Hi Kaleni !!! great seeing these names come up ! I thought I would never forget...my book should be in the windhoek bookstores..always wondered where Hieronymous G..got his first name...must be such a story..looking back..the student uprising and national strikes came at a wrong time for SA...who did not want to deal with internal strife whilst engaged in heavy batlles on the Lomba river..

Doris Roos Thanks Milton for putting into perspective contributions made by those who where in the country and who had to deal with daily harassments from SADF and Koevoet.

March 27, 2011 at 1:03
Milton Louw @Basil - we are supposed to be 37? if I remember correctly. Will check the court records when I get back to Namibia. Am writing short stories on each of the photos.

March 28, 2011 at 10:33
Milton Louw @Karl - I would like to get more of John Arthur Liebenberg photos developed into high resolution prints. One, for saving in our archives, two for those of us involved to sign and each keep as our souvenirs and three a book with the photos from the internal struggle.

March 28, 2011 at 10:35
Milton Louw email me: miltonlouw@gmail.com for more information Karl

March 28, 2011 at 10:36
Karl Aribeb Will do. But you may consider a fund-raising braai in Donkerhoek at Peoples' House when you return. LOL

March 28, 2011 at 19:09

Milton Louw @Nicky - where is Nanso now?

March 29, 2011 at 10:00
Levi Lee Shigwedha asked again, Milton. I dont even see the Nanso shadow. But the is a leadership. Where they operate from is no where to hear. Somebody update me, please.. Cde Abraham Iyambo is fighting alone, where is Nanso to back him up. Student specialy in the north are in a natural dissaster.

March 29, 2011 at 14:27
Karl Aribeb Hi guys. I have these 2 socalled born free daughters. They never beleived me when I related to them what we went through before independence. These photo's helped me to win the debate with the youngest one asking if I could not register them as "struggle kids". Any advise comrades?

March 30, 2011 at 12:45
Basil Rickerts I am currently lecturing at the same institution where I was arrested then, now The Polytechnic of Nambia. We wanted "English now". The chalk marks of what we wrote on the wall in front of the lecture block was still faintly visible some time ago. But we are not free yet, we are being victimised and exploitedsometimes by our own Namibian "masters" and their foreign servants.....It is time to stand up again!!! We are the forgotten ones.

March 30, 2011 at 21:34
Milton Louw Ditto that "Mantie". See my students and wonder what they have worth fighting for too?

March 31, 2011 at 17:26

And we all drank coke -universal sign of freedom of choice (**Photos courtesy of John Liebenberg http://www.facebook.com/jaliebenberg**) See Outapi War Museum for more: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Outapi-war-museum/105863206161637

My friend Yvette - happy to see me unscathed. Me - just happy to be out. Those guys were scary. (**Photos courtesy of John Liebenberg - http://www.facebook.com/jaliebenberg**) See Outapi War Museum for more: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Outapi-war-museum/105863206161637

March 28, 2011 at 12:36
Basil Rickerts Is it not possible to enlarge these photos? I am sure I am there somewhere. It was an incredible time in my life... Lost friends, was threatened that my Bursary would be cancelled, etc. But thanks to people like Mrs Heywood and others who knew what we were capable of. I am proud to have done my part in the liberation of this country. At least we didn't die in silence... and we are even proving ourselves now in society through our work and careers.

March 31, 2011 at 16:01
Milton Louw I am trying to get some interest in staging an exhibition and a book about the students of 87/88 and their contribution. The above was kindly granted by John Arthur Liebenberg - and I would appreciate and help / guidance

March 31, 2011 at 17:36

Witbooi Rueben Basil sometimes we do not realize that the little efforts that we as persons made can change things. If one look back at things like this than we see that the efforts for freedom was not just fought from the outside alone, the efforts and the enduring we made on the inside should never be underestimated and never ever be taken for granted.

March 31, 2011 at 17:46

March 23, 2011 at 19:03
Doris Roos I am sure the person behind Shixwameni, next to Renette must be the late lizet and or me, but we cannot see the faces. There is no way that Ingrid and Renette were siting there without us.

March 23, 2011 at 23:46
Karl Aribeb I also though it was you. Hey I see late elder mzee Charles Sinvula just above rinette and Ingrid next to the lady with a floral dress

March 24, 2011 at 14:54
Milton Louw @Doris - Let me know whose names to add in the description too. Anyone can be tagged - that means more people can see the picture even if they were not in it.

March 24, 2011 at 15:03
Doris Roos Aleta Eises-Wimmerth, Martha Skrywer, the late Tolletjies, Deta (now lecturing at UNAM), but none of these guys are on FB. If Renette can see this she would be able to identify more names but she hardly goes on FB.

March 24, 2011 at 15:11
Milton Louw Will add -the pictures are going to be published one day and I would want to get their names (and possibly where they are now)-email me miltonlouw@gmail.com

March 26, 2011 at 23:30

John Arthur Liebenberg Was this David Shikongo ?

March 28, 2011 at 20:18
Evelyn Shilamba No John Arthu. The late Shikongo Gabriel Nuunyango was the organiser for all - students, workers. He was also responsible for transtlation at most rallies, worked closely with late Bishop Kauluma and after independence became the Secretary General of MANWU.

March 28, 2011 at 21:28

March 24, 2011 at 10:15
Doris Roos We need an "Otji Come-together" of those who are still alive to catch up on each others life since the turbulent eighties.

March 24, 2011 at 15:03
Milton Louw @Doris, can I nominate you as the Chairperson for this committee? Reunion of Academy of Tertiary Education students? (LOL)

March 24, 2011 at 15:06
Doris Roos LOL. Why not? But it will be very challenging to plan such an event via remote control. The ones in the country should start and I will make my contributions via the social network. LOL.

March 24, 2011 at 15:14
Milton Louw I am in Düsseldorf, Germany Doris....

March 24, 2011 at 15:19

Shipena S.School, Augustium S.School, Ella Du PLessis and on our way to David Bezuidenhoudt S.School, the police stopped us at the river near Funky Town Khomasdal. There they shot us with rubber bullets. Few of us spent one night in the cells.

I learnt how to toyi-toyi. (The toyi-toyi, is a military march dance and song style used in demonstrations.) "The toyi-toyi was our weapon. We did not have the technology of warfare, the tear gas and tanks, but we had this weapon." 1. Moses Kandjoze 2. Nganyone Moses 3. Cde Hanse (?) (**Photo courtesy John Liebenberg**)

March 23, 2011 at 15:02
Kaleni Hiyalwa This is amazing, Milton. Never in the history of this country are wonderful uniting pictures like these ones. Some time last week or the previous one I listen to President Pohamba making a very important point that people inside the country had fought for independence and the evils of apartheid because they even had no weapons. Is this not exemplifying that?

March 23, 2011 at 16:33
Karl Aribeb The guy should be Moses Kandjoze

March 23, 2011 at 19:04
Maureen Hinda-Mbaziira Nganyone Moses dont kill me for the spelling

March 23, 2011 at 22:19
Maureen Hinda-Mbaziira And the Lady I have been looking for i think she must be Hanse or Hansen

March 23, 2011 at 22:20
Doris Roos Maureen she was doing social work and was a first year student that year, was from Keetmans or Karasburg, but cannot remember her name. Judith Garises (now married) was her friend. Judith is working in one of the Ministries in the old Nama sake building in Keetmans.

March 23, 2011 at 23:26
Berenice Dentlinger that lady was in my social work class....just cannot remember her name...but i shall get it

March 26, 2011 at 13:44
Doris Roos Hi Berenice check the other pics too and see whom you can identify. Thanx dear.

March 26, 2011 at 14:04
Maureen Hinda-Mbaziira I am telling you its so god to see so many old friend and students getting connected.

March 26, 2011 at 21:07
Maureen Hinda-Mbaziira Nr. 2 is Chaka Goreseb

March 26, 2011 at 21:08
Doris Roos We should thank Milton for starting these exciting exchanges. Each time I look at these pictures I remember some forgotten friend.

March 26, 2011 at 21:13
Maureen Hinda-Mbaziira indeed

March 26, 2011 at 21:14

Maureen Hinda-Mbaziira I remember kalina maybe not on pictures, the Khorixas girls that were always there to start the singing Irmgard Goagoses, Getrude, Eline,Ester, Mrs. Witbooi and Magdes

Doris Roos Now that you mentioned Kalina, I remember Fenny, Kalina's friend. I am sure they must be on FB. And Rejoyce who was married to Eric Quest. We should add their names even if they are not in the pictures.

March 26, 2011 at 21:24
Maureen Hinda-Mbaziira Fenny is Shangengange now and kalina Tembo Rejoyce maiden name is also Shangengange

March 26, 2011 at 21:34

March 26, 2011 at 22:11

dissidents collected into one photograph..

March 23, 2011 at 11:53
Milton Louw Thanks to your lens John.

March 23, 2011 at 11:56
Doris Roos Thanx Milton for sharing and John for taking us back down memory lane. During this unrest, I left the Academy and went home to Katutura. I changed my mind and went to my friend Irish Mtebe's house in Golgota. At 2am the following morning myself, Irish and her 5yr old daughter Mandisa were waken by loud knocks and kicks on every window and door of that small house. We jumped out of our beds not knowing which way to run. Irish opened the door and it was as if the whole South-African Defence Force was outside in that small yard. They pushed us aside, asked for our names and ID's, turned the furniture in the house upside down with three dogs sniffing at us and at gunpoint demanded for my student card. I did not have my 1988 student card but somehow my 1986 student card was found amongst my books when they threw out the content of my school bag. After staring at me and passing my student card around and a short interrogation they left. We peeped through the window and could not belief that they came with armored vehicles and truck loads full of soldiers. The 5yr old was so traumatised she had difficulty to sleep for days after that experience.

Aulden Harlech-Jones It's a little like a family portrait - I remember being securely locked away at school while all this was happening!

March 23, 2011 at 16:09
Kaleni Hiyalwa Very interesting photos. Do u have a library of these? Looing for photos for the student and workers uprising(s) of the 1988 orwas it (1989?). Plse help if you can.

March 23, 2011 at 16:29

Cyrlene Claasen I think we need an exhibition ... not just for memory lane but to remind that all of us were fighting for freedom. Not just some. I think it could even help with nation-building ...

March 24, 2011 at 12:25
Martin T. Tuyakula That was the best uprising and it was nationwide uprising i was in ongwediva college this time and the spirit was high. remembering about demanding the SADF army base to be removed near our schools in the country

March 25, 2011 at 7:20
Tjetunyenga Uukwambi Milton, keep them coming mate.Good job!!!.Pleas post photo's of the unrest in the north if any ( Grootfontain, Tsumeb, Rundu??

March 28, 2011 at 0:35
Tjetunyenga Uukwambi I agree we need an exhibition.Some of guys looking at the photo's where VERY young and have no knowledge of the contribution MADE BY Studen Heroes at the time!!!

March 24, 2011 at 12:30
Milton Louw There is Cyrlene. Its our task to find it. Will speak to John Arthur Liebenberg about that exhibition

March 24, 2011 at 12:39
Iggy Shixwameni That' all ok my good good friends and compatriots! but history must be told rightly and truthfully! Dr. Ngurare was not part of that uprising please! let history be recorded truthfully and not be distorted as it is being done by the powers that are now please! i felt so angry and insulted about the apartheid scripture reading which was done at the independence celebration in Otjiwarongo by a certain socalled pastor immitataing the NGKerk! Anyway guys I want you to keep up the activism of the 80s! I fear

nothing at all only GOd!

March 25, 2011 at 20:34
Tjetunyenga Uukwambi Hi iggy please tell us what you know at the time.As some of us where very young, we would love to hear and learn the history of what was realy happening??

March 28, 2011 at 0:26
Milton Louw Iggy, please note - tagging someone in a picture does not mean thy were there. It is a way of putting the picture on their wall for them to see it. If someone is in the picture, they are written up in the description

March 28, 2011 at 9:50
John Arthur Liebenberg ditto !!

Connie Owoses Milton ,Anton Lubowski ,myself ,Desmond Kays ,Elke Von francois and Axab(who never returned from Lubango ,after joining Swapo cause his life was in danger)organised the very first strike of Khomasdal schools inthis country,s history and we joined Nanso and Katutura schools in this very rally .we were brutaly beaten and ambushed in a river near Dawid bezuidenhoudt by the koevoets ,i clearly remember the day.Reggie Diergaadt came to our rescue or else blood could flow ,i still have the scars of that that day physically and mentaly.we all fight for the freedom of this country ,but some comarades think they were the only ones.Long live the spirit of Axab ,he was the keyman and my thoughts goes out to his mother who still don,t know where her child is.

March 28, 2011 at 15:41
Milton Louw Thanks for your comment Connie. We all went through some tragic times during the Independence struggle. I just want a better understanding for our younger people. Many are under the impression it was a war "somewhere out there". They do not know it was here on our streets as well.

March 28, 2011 at 15:44
Connie Owoses I am just content that i played a role in our freedom even if it is not known or recognised God knows what we went through and that there were phenominal white men like Anton Lubowski and John liebenberg who alos gave they life for this country

March 28, 2011 at 15:50
Milton Louw I got these from John Arthur Liebenberg. Now I mean to share them, and our oral history for the future leaders of our country.

March 28, 2011 at 15:51
Nado Canniggia Axab i knew. He used to stay in Namalokasie... my uncle's friend

March 28, 2011 at 16:03
Connie Owoses His blood watered our Freedom ,i just commented without checking your previous comments Milton ,Axab and Anton Lubowski should never be forgotten.you can also get the happenings of this very event at Nbc ,they were recoding us i remember we were on news ,if it will be helpful for your book,Goodluck.

March 28, 2011 at 16:08

March 28, 2011 at 16:45
Nicky Katapa Mutenda Long live student activism- As students we are members of society before we are students as such students have changed many societies and Nam is one of them. Viva NANSO Viva!!

March 28, 2011 at 21:18
Charles Josob Some of us fondlyh remember the day at the Academy when the soldiers surrounded the campus and the @takmag@ went in with their samboks to teach the students a lesson. Many of the students of yesteryear are palying important roles in our government.

March 28, 2011 at 23:08
Charles Josob People like Chaka Koreseb have disappeared from the scene .I hope he is making a contribution somewhere. Gomes, Tweya, Hanse, and indeed many others are the people I recall as having been captured on that day. They were released following a succesful challenge to the laws that prohibited any action, including holding meetings or even attempting, against the state.Advocates Hartmunt Ruppel, Brian Olinn, will shed more light on that challenge. I am sure that the Jean Sutherland has an equally

remarkable collection. They should collaborate to put up an exhibition of student politics as a contribution to the liberation struggle.

March 28, 2011 at 23:17
John Grobler Was in a many ways easier times, politically - the battle lines were clear. These days that is not the case any more

March 29, 2011 at 7:51
Nado Canniggia U guys were brave in fighting da wrong which was apartheid then... I only wish we were just as much couragious to fight da wrong which is now corruption and da upliftment of da few

March 29, 2011 at 8:28
Milton Louw @Charles - 37 of us arrested. Many more supported us from outside the walls. This outside support transgressed colour or race or even age. This led to many of our adults turning against the RSA regime for the first time. The classic was my grandmother: "Wat is verkeerd met hulle. My kleinkind stem nie altyd saam met my nie, maar dit beteken nie ek moet hom in die tronk sit of skiet nie." For the first time, the regime had awakened the anger of all the population. The internal struggle for the hearts of the people had been lost.

March 29, 2011 at 10:09
Danie Botha This is part of our history people like Sam Nujoma seem to be oblivious of. Maybe its time that they be reminded that thousands of people they call unpatriotic today never wavered during those days. A book of NANSO and the role of the internal youth in the struggle should see the light of day.

March 29, 2011 at 10:58
Milton Louw Danie Botha - a book on the internal struggles is very important. I hope somebody can take up the challenge for NANSO -

March 29, 2011 at 11:48
Milton Louw For those who can remember, I was a Swapo member, but not NANSO. I felt then, and still do, that a student or union should not be politically affiliated to be truly representative .

March 29, 2011 at 11:50
Evilastus Kaaronda Let us write our books and thereby tell our stories so as to have them retold! What the students did whas done not because they wanted to draw praise but because they believed in the inviolability and indivisibility of their humanity! Nobody, especially those who went into exile must tell any story that they deserve better a piece of the pie in post apartheid Nambia than those who remained inside the country. We must refuse to be slaves or prisoners of any epoch! Freedom is our birth right!

March 29, 2011 at 12:01

March 29, 2011 at 16:02
Doris Roos @Charles I was in fact thinking about that time myself when the whole campus was cordoned off by Koevoet and no one was allowed to enter the campus or to leave. I could not remember which year it was. What I remember was how they invaded the campus and beat the hell out of all of us. Another memory was when we broke down the wall which was build in front of the female hostel, at the back of the library, where Tweya gave the famous speech, challenging authorities and telling them the actual reason for building that wall was to "protect" the white folks across the street from the black students on the campus. I think that was in 1986. Actually throughout the 80's mass uprisings across the country where student led with the workers. History needs to be shared so that the contributions and brutalities experienced in the country can be told to the uninformed returnees. Thanks all for chipping in and sharing your stories.

March 30, 2011 at 16:25
Violet Hanse Yes Milton, I remember, I took time off from the Khomasdal College to visit Mansto (Willem Simon Hanse) at the then Academy Campus in Windhoek. He was even barefoot when he left in the police van

March 29, 2011 at 22:04
David Helu I give my appreciation to Johan Liebenberg.He made the events alive with his magnificent (at times traumatic) pictures. It felt as if he was present for 24 hours at all places throughout the country. I hope history will remember him as one of the great players in the liberation struggle of Namibia.

March 30, 2011 at 16:02
John Arthur Liebenberg Thanks David ! The school is at Okanimekwa. Destroyed by a powerfull bomb..placed inside one of the classrooms, or next to a outside wall, at night by unknown assailants. The teacher claimed it was recce people dressed in plan gear, the sadf released a statement claiming it was Swapo..the teacher not seen in this picture ( but in my book BOG ..much broader pixs with teacher pointing at hole in concrete floor) if I recall was sympathetic to Swapo and may have encourageded learners to flee into exile. Learners then were subject to searches, questions and haressment by SADF troops on school property. Several had been beaten or had walked into an ambush..I recall going to the home of a learner bayonetted by a stupid soldier.

March 30, 2011 at 19:08
John Arthur Liebenberg These events and incidences led to the uprising in 88 .

March 30, 2011 at 19:15
John Arthur Liebenberg "Unknown assailants or persons" was the usual finding of the magistrate in Tsumeb, when she suspected foul play by the security forces. The Inquest court in Tsumeb dealt with all cases of death in the north.Smittie would chase like a madman to Tsumeb on a Thursday to be the only reporter challenging and recording the inquests for publication in his newspaper..I wonder where those inquest documents and files are.

March 30, 2011 at 19:25
David Helu Thank you John for the additional information. Any exhibition in the future?

Nico Kaiyamo We exchange the spirit of comradeship and unity for the love of money driven by corruption and self-enrichment. @ Evelyn

March 27, 2011 at 11:32

Milton Louw Hopefully not everyone @Nico. I still believe there is a lot of good character in all of us, it just needs to see the light again. That's why I wrote my book, Future Namibia.

March 28, 2011 at 10:22
Nico Kaiyamo Yes, for sure I am not generalising as that will be unfair to the honest and gud character out there but the comradeship that united us then is not visible enough in an independent Namibia @ Milton.

March 28, 2011 at 10:30

March 28, 2011 at 10:32

March 28, 2011 at 10:47
Michael Radway i know this will be a very enteresting book , can't wait to get my copy, make sure it is available in english; keep it up

March 28, 2011 at 21:37
Cuana Angula I read the book, Milton you are raising fundamental issues which can be taken up by the Namibians for a better tomorrow, I know many will disagree with you on the issues are raising, i think the issues you are raising can be basis for debate which is lacking in our country. good work cde!
