  • Description

    In New York, the newly-elected Chief of the Herero nation in Namibia has called for elections in his country. Kuaima Riruako, who has been studying at New York University, replaces Clemens Kapuuo, who was assassinated earlier this year. Chief Kapuuo was widely tipped as a future president of an independent Namibia. Some political parties in Namibia blamed his death on the South West Africa Peoples' Organisation -- SWAPO -- which is opposing South African rule in the territory. Visnews reporter Karl Hoffenberg interviewed Chief Riruako.
