Namibia 1966 – 1990

SWAPO leader Herman Andimba Toivo ya Toivo.
The Namibian liberation organisation fighting for independence, was called the South West African People’s Organisation (SWAPO). The 26th August 1966 marked the first armed attack SWAPO launched against the South African Defence Force. This day, now recognised by the United Nations as Namibia Day, is referred to as “Heroes’ Day” by Namibians. The Namibian War of Independence ended in 1988 when the New York Accords were signed. However, Namibia only became independent 2 years later when it held its elections on the 21st March 1990. SWAPO won this election with an overwhelming majority of 55 out of 72 seats. They thus formed the Namibian National Government. While under South African occupation, Namibia was called South West Africa.
