Samson Ndikwela, a civil society troublemaker who was among others a founding member of the Forum for the Future, passed away.
A family member said the outspoken civil society leader died last night at Windhoek Hospital after a week of hospitalization. He was 77 years old.
The family denied media reports that he died of Covid-19.
Ndikwela was one of the founding members of Breaking the Silence – a pressure group set up to seek to end the mass internment, deaths and disappearances suffered by Namibians in exile in southern Angola during the liberation struggle.
He is also the author of The Torment of Truth, which is about his personal experience and suffering during the liberation struggle.
