Windhoek in the early 60’s. The 34-year old politician Clemens Kapuuo knocks at the door of the senior advocate Israel Goldblatt to solicit advice in the developing struggle of Africans against Apartheid. An unusual relationship and friendship, transcending the racial divide in this South African governed territory, develops, lasting for nearly 10 years.
Meeting in Goldblatt’s chambers or in the Old Location, their consultations soon also include the veteran politicians Chief Hosea Kutako and Kaptein Samuel Witbooias well as a group of younger nationalist like Rev. Bartholomew Karuaera, Levi Nganjone and Ephraim Vitore. Through Kapuuo, Goldblatt also meets and counsels the long-term prisoner from Caprivi, Brendan Simbwaye. This book provides the Notes of Israel Goldblatt on the encounters and conversations.
