Herero & Nama disagree on Germany-Namibia genocide-compensation deal

DW, 05 Jun 2021
Germany has officially acknowledged that it committed genocide during its colonial-era occupation of Namibia, and announced a financial settlement of some 1.1 billion euros. That money will be spent over the next thirty years on infrastructure, healthcare and training programs to benefit the Herero and Nama communities, who suffered under German exploitation.
But many Herero and Nama representatives are unhappy with the deal and are protesting. DW correspondent Adrian Kriesch reports.
