The colonial name "South West Africa (SWA)" and the official name of the independent state, "Namibia", are used in this work according to the context and author’s preference. "Namibia" was adopted by the liberation movement SWAPO in the early 1960s and by the United Nations in 1968, but it only became the country’s official and internationally recognised name on 21 March 1990 – independence day. After 1968 the name "SWA/Namibia" was introduced inside the country and used according to preference, but this name is not used in this work except in quoting directly from a reference source or in referring to the official title of a government post.
