Angolan Refugee Camp


June 2002
So African Intervention in Namibia
Namibia used to be part of South Africa and South African incursions into Angola and Namibia continued from 1975 until well into the 1980’s and I tell you this because Rod, having been raised as an Afrikaner in South Africa was conscripted from the age of 16 to 18 (between 1987 and 1989) into the South African military and participated in it’s guerrilla activities in Namibia, Angola and also in secret incursions against the ANC in South Africa.

Several thousand refugees are camped in the distance. “We won’t drive into the camp,” he says, “out of respect for them.”
