BEYOND THE BORDER WAR: NEW PERSPECTIVES ON SOUTHERN AFRICA’S LATE COLD WAR CONFLICTS/EDITED BY G. BAINES AND P. VALE

Ian Liebenberg

Abstract


Namibia became independent after decades of struggle when the apartheid
government accepted UN Resolution 435. In Windhoek the flag of the occupier
finally made way for one heralding a rising sun. Peace returned to Namibia and
Namibia to the Namibians. South Africa had withdrawn from Angola after years of
intimate involvement. Jonas Savimbi, leader of the rebel movement Unita and a
former proxy of South Africa, continued the civil war for another dozen years. The
landmines remained. In many towns and villages in Angola the maimed and the
wounded are still to be seen.
