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. On my retirement a group of like-minded Pan-Africanists decided to establish PAISAS to keep alive the flames of Pan-Africanism in Namibia, in Africa and to reach out globally to those who take Pan-Africanism seriously. In that regard we will be involved in research, publication, documentation and networking activities with organizations and individuals who share our vision.

We believe the African condition requires the attention of all those of us who believe in the progress, growth and development of Africa for the benefit of the African People. You may recall that W.E.B. DuBois stated at the First Pan-African Conference of 1900 that the problem of the 20th century was the problem of the color line.

As it is obvious to everybody, Africa is still trapped in the chronic cycle of underdevelopment. This condition is responsible for African poverty, inequality and backwardness.

At the dawn of Africa’s emancipation Africa made progress in health care, education, politics and community development. These were the days of Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, Modibo Keita of Mali, David Kaunda of Zambia – just to mention a few. These leaders were by and large inspired by the resolutions of the 5th Pan-African Congress (PAC) of 1945 held in Manchester, UK. 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’. The emancipation of the African People was to be achieved by uniting the African People into a bulwark of anti-imperialist struggle. CONTINUES
