Germany under fire for violating rights of ethnic minorities in Namibia

Germany has come under fire from a group of UN experts for breaching the rights of Herero and Nama ethnic minorities in Namibia by excluding them from discussions on making up for the atrocities committed against them under its colonial rule.

The seven UN experts published their correspondences with both countries and pushed Germany to accept responsibility for all of its colonial crimes in Namibia, including mass murders.

They also stated that it was improper for the Herero and Nama ethnic minorities to have been indirectly involved in negotiations through an advisory council. The UN experts recommended that Germany compensate the Herero and Nama minorities directly, rather than via the Namibian government.

This week's program focuses on Germany's genocide in Namibia during its colonial rule. We will then speak about Sudan's humanitarian crisis.
