AJPAS: Greetings Nahas Angula, and thank you for agreeing to participate in this (February 2017) interview.

NA: My name is Nahas Angula, former Prime Minister of the Republic of Namibia and now a retired politician.

One of these resolutions read that ‘the struggle for political power by colonial people is a first step towards, and a necessary prerequisite to complete socio economic emancipation’.
