As we prepare for an update from Vice-President Nangolo Mbumba on the Genocide talks between Germany and Namibia, the Associated Press reports that a group of traditional chiefs in Namibia said Thursday they have accepted an offer of compensation by Germany and a recognition that the colonial-era massacre of tens of thousands of their people in the early 20th century was genocide. Gerson Katjirua, head of the Ovaherero/OvaMbanderu and Nama Council, which consists of 21 tribal chiefs, said they accepted the offer but said it could still be improved through further negotiations, insisting though that the process “was and will never be about making money from the German government”.
