The Special Envoys of Namibia and Germany, Dr. Zed Ngavirue and Ruprecht Polenz met from 28 to 29 September 2017 in Berlin for their sixth round of negotiations. The Namibian delegation included representatives of the particularly affected communities as well as senior government officials.
The talks progressed in a very good and constructive atmosphere. They included – amongst other topics – the return of human remains from Germany to Namibia. Both sides are preparing a dignified return to Namibia with the inclusion of representatives of the particularly affected communities. This would be the third return of human remains. The talks should continue this year in Namibia.
