Tribute to a Namibian icon: Andimba Toivo ya Toivo

Thursday 29 June 2017

Professor Henning Melber, senior research fellow at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies (ICWS), has published a tribute to Namibian icon Andimba (Herman) Toivo ya Toivo, in The Conversation. Describing the 92-year-old freedom fighter who led the struggle to liberate Namibia from apartheid South Africa as a ‘moral beacon’, Professor Melber hopes that the hero’s death, on 9 June, will encourage others to become the ‘torchbearers of his values.’
