Press Releases: APPEAL TO THE 12TH ASSEMBLY OF THE LUTHERAN WORLD FEDERATION (LWF) TO APOLOGIZE AND FACILITATE NATIONAL HEALING IN NAMIBIA

May 9 2017

I. Introduction

  1. We, the undersigned concerned Namibian organizations and individuals, hereby address this Appeal to the 12th Assembly (“the Assembly”) of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) that meets in Windhoek, Namibia, during 10-16 May 2017. We ask the Assembly to consider using its commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation as a golden opportunity to apologize to hundreds of Namibian victims, dead and alive, their families and relatives, as well as to the Namibian nation for the LWF’s complicity in the massive human rights violations by the South West Africa People’s Organisation (SWAPO) leadership during Namibia’s independence struggle. At the same time, we appeal to the Assembly to seriously consider facilitating genuine national reconciliation in Namibia.
  2. However, as also narrated in the Assembly Booklet on Namibia, we wish to express our gratitude to the LWF for standing up and speaking out publicly and unequivocally against the widespread and systematic human rights violations committed against hundreds of fellow Namibians by apartheid South Africa during those dark days. We express our appreciation for the generous contribution of the LWF towards the humanitarian assistance for Namibian refugees in Tanzania, Zambia and Angola.

The full Appeal be accessed here in PDF format.
