DIE GEOMETRIESE EN RIVIERGRENSE VAN SUIDWES-AFRIKA, MET SPESIALE VERWYSING NA DIE NOORDE EN DIE CAPRIVISTROOK

J.C. Kotzé

Abstract


In this article it becomes evident that the boundaries of Southwest Africa and especially the Northern and Caprivi boundaries are arbitrary and artificial.

Human decision-making, although many years ago, created this unnatural situation whereby people speaking the same language and often engaging in the same economic activities, were separated from each other. Separations where economical, ethnic and linguistic factors are not taken into account, occur worldwide and is not a problem restricted to the boundaries of Africa.
