Recent history of Namibia
Namibia was colonized by Germany for a few years which is the main reason this country adopted German language and cuisine but after a while, South Africa took over and made Namibia’s official language, English to sync it with itself and didn’t allow Namibians to have a Sovereign nation until February 9, 1990, when UN put pressure on South Africa for two continuous years.
After independence, Namibia’s government set up the country’s roots on Democratic values which made the country what it is today, one of the Democratic countries in Africa!
