OTJIWARONGO, 08 AUG (NAMPA) - Nearly 5 000 Ovaherero are expected to gather at Okakarara on Saturday for the annual commemoration of the battle of Ohamakari.
The battle, the first between Ovaherero and Nama ethnic groups and the then imperial German troops, broke out on 11 August 1904.
It led to German Major-General Lothar von Trotha issuing an order on 02 October 1904 for the extermination of all Ovaherero and Nama who resisted the German colonial administration in Namibia.
