Description:

The children's book 'Sam Nujoma: The Founding President of Namibia', estimated from a European reader's perspective, is designed to inspire children and teenager by 'national heroes'. It is too deep into simplifying history and Nujoma's biography though, that one could not consider it political propaganda aiming at young readers. Belonging to the series 'African Heroes and Heroines Series for Young Readers', the author creates an uncritical, fatherly image of Dr. Sam Nujoma's role in history, of war and killing: "The book tells the story of the Founding President of Namibia, His Excellency Dr Sam Nujoma, from his childhood to the dawn of Namibia's Independence. It follows Namibia's struggle for liberation from South African apartheid rule, and the era of reconciliation that followed. The book describes Dr Nujoma's dedication to Namibia's freedom; and will undoubtedly inspire and educate children in Namibia and beyond. It is highly recommended for youth in their quest to learn about this chapter in Namibia's history.", believes the publisher.
