Eye on Africa – Germany rejects reparations call as Namibian MPs slam genocide deal

Issued on:

Germany rejects calls for reparations for Namibia after admitting to genocide in the former colony in the early 20th century. Berlin says the agreed sum of €1.1 billion in financial aid is only a “voluntary payment”. Also, the NGO Save the Children says that minors are being used as a warfare tactic by armed groups in northern Mozambique. And we hear from Gado, the Tanzanian artist who has stamped his mark on the regional press with his insight into the hottest and most controversial topics of the day.
