Namibia: mass graves

Since it is a country that get very little focus I thought I would post a link to a recent article on Namibia. There has been an ongoing process of uncovering and discovering mass graves said to be those of SWAPO soldiers. The events seem to have sparked a debate about transitional justice options there. To date, the SWAPO government has preferred to attempt to draw a line under the sand. Some NGOs are calling for a truth commission. The recent article was published in the Sunday Times and can be accessed by clicking here. I also posted this on a new blog that I am part of called the Transitional Justice Forum.
